Dropbox seems to only want to upload 700 or so photos, even though it says there are 16k photos for 505 events. What can I do? I downloaded the newest version per Pandrea's comment.

Plus, it doesn't recognize the latest version of Apple's photo. I have to use an old library from the prior version.

Hi Robert,

Indeed the iphoto importer only works with iPhoto and not the Photos app on Yosemite 😞

Are you uploading your pictures using the website or the desktop app?

Pandrea, I am using the desktop app. For the time being, I'm ok using the old iPhoto file since it has the specific photos I need. But, I do need to get this figured out. Thanks for replying to my initial post so quickly.

Hi there, 

I have accidentally uploaded my entire iPhoto library to dropbox - and now I was told that it might cause me troubles (library might be converted and thus be "destroyed"). Could anybody please help me how to get it downloaded again without risking to loose any files? It contains images from my wedding and the childhood of both my children, so I will be SOOOO grateful to get them back in a good condition!

Best, 

Sidsel
