Camera Uploads obviously uploads images from the camera roll. Only. Is it possible to upload all photos on my phone to Camera Uploads? Including ones downloaded or edited in an app?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately that is not what is happening. All I get is the contents of the "Camera" folder inside "DCIM". Other photos like everything in the "Pictures" folder, WhatsApp, Photoshop Express, Screenshots, Facebook, Instagram, etc don't upload to Camera Uploads at all. (They are all inside the "Photos" app though, and backed up to photos.google.com). And I can't find any setting to enable this. This is an Android phone ver 9
This isn't quite what you're asking for BUT.. if you do not mind using a third party app, you can get a similar effect. get the 'FolderSync' app or any other app with similar features from the google play store.using FolderSync app as an example, add your Dropbox account, then under Folderpairs, under Accounts: select your Dropbox account. sync type: 'to remote folder.'. Remote folder: select the folder in Dropbox you want to sync to. Local folder: the folder from your phone you want to get the files from, then select the frequency of the syncing, if only while on wifi or cellular and things along that line. you might have to repeat this process for each individual folder you want to sync.
Hope this helps
