Changing the location of Camera upload folder

Changing the location of Camera upload folder

Would love to have this feature for flexibility in workflow and organization, including choosing different upload folders for different devices. I see this request in the support forum, but not on the request side.

While uploading the pictures to Dropbox by default is uploading to Camera upload folder. How can I change the default location as I have 2 Iphone  and would like to synchronize the pictures to Dropbox by enabling the camera upload option. If the pictures are going to be uploaded default in camera upload folder how can I differentiate the pictures from both Iphone. 

really appreciate if I can get some on this topic.

A feature for this already exists on Google Photos. The idea is to add a menu in the app that shows which folders with images and videos your cellphone will upload from. There is a toggle for every folder and it being ON means pictures in it will be synced into the Camera Uploads folder.

 

For example, maybe I want my saved pictures from Facebook not synced, my Boomerang videos synced, my Whatsapp pictures not synced. You get the idea how this would be useful.

 

Not all apps that save images to my phone save them to the camera roll folder, but also not all folders that have images are images I want synced and uploaded.
