A button to upload the original,edited or both versions of photos through camera uploads

Can there please be a setting on iOS to tell Dropbox ONLY to upload the edited images? I crop and edit a LOT of photos daily and you're creating so much extra work for me to go in and delete the wrong photos from my storage (as well as taking up double the storage space I'm paying for!!).

At least if it was always the 2nd one that was unedited, i could just go delete every other photo, but it uploads randomly. Sometimes the first one is edited sometimes the second.

This is incredibly frustrating and needlessly time-consuming!! Can you please add an option to choose "only originals" or "only edited" or "both"

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

We've updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

Status changed to: Needs more votes

Oh, I need this feature a lot. This indeed pisses me off when you did al the editing you neede on iPhone and you receive thousands of duplicates and need to manually sort you photos again. I guess this is so obvious that such a feature is a must!!!!

Please, correct this immediately

So glad it's not just me with this issue! The app should just upload edited versions of the photos unless it's requested to upload the originals too.

Any update on this beyond "needing more votes"? I just upgraded my phone and while this problem always irritated me, wasn't a big issue. Now with portrait mode counting as "edited", it's an issue! I may stop backing up to Dropbox and since that's the main thing I use it for these days I may not want to pay for it anymore. But I'd rather just have the toggle feature since Dropbox is my preferred method of backup.
