Apple IOS Change to Upload Multiple Pics/Files to Dropbox

Explorer | Level 3

It seems that Apple have made changes to their IOS that limits the upload of pictures and files to a dropbox folder to one image at a time.

Previous to the latest IOS upgrade you could select any number of images and upload them to a dropbox folder (I did this frequently) but now you can only do one image at a time.  

Apple clearly pushing users to the icloud!

Still works just fine for me, on the latest iOS. I've sent multiple files from my Camera Roll to Dropbox via the Files app, and directly within the Dropbox app.

What steps, exactly, are you taking to upload your files?

1. Open Photos

2. Select multiple pics

3. select upload button bottom left

4. up comes the options (use to have dropbox as an option)

5. Select More... (still no dropbox)

 

Note, when I do one pic, drop box is there as an option in 4.

You do it through Files. It's been like that for quite a while now.

  1. Open Photos
  2. Select multiple photos
  3. Tap the Share icon in the bottom-left
  4. Tap Save to Files in the available choices
  5. Tap Dropbox
  6. Select the folder to save them to
  7. Tap Save

therein lay the problem at step 5 because Dropbox is NO LONGER an option UNLESS you only choose 1 image!

This works as long as you are not interrogating the meta-data to identify the files to save, ie if I want all of the pictures I took at Melbourne Airport to go into a Melbourne Airport File, I can't search by area using this workaround.  Previously, I could go into IOS image search, select Melbourne Airport then select the images I want and upload them to the relevant folder.

As I said... You don't choose Dropbox. You choose Save to Files, and then Dropbox is an option within the Files app.


Previously, I could go into IOS image search, select Melbourne Airport then select the images I want and upload them to the relevant folder.  

And you still can. I just opened Photos, tapped Search and entered a city name that I visited recently. When some of the images appeared in the results, I tapped See All to see the full results. I tapped Select and then tapped a number of images to slect them. There were five images selected. I then tapped the Share icon in the bottom-right. In the list that appears, I selected Save to Files then Tapped Dropbox to load a list of the folders in my account. I tapped the folder that I wanted to save the images to and then tapped Save. It worked perfectly.

If you're not seeing Dropbox as an option with the Files app, make sure you've opened Files and enabled the Dropbox option.
