Have Camera Uploads create a folder for year/month instead of uploading all in one folder?

It would be very helpful if Dropbox could organize by year or year/month in the Camera Uploads folder.

 

Currently I have 8 years of photos all in the same directory.

Seems pretty trivial to have an option to store them in a directory by year/month.

And super useful!

I feel the pain - that feature would be much appreciated, thanks!

I like this idea.

 

Something to add: maybe create folders based on the model of phone you're using.

I have seven years of photos in my Dropbox Camera Uploads folder, and even longer ago in a "Camera Uploads - Archive" folder when I got a new phone and decided to start with a fresh folder, but that was seven years ago. Now, I have 22,928 items (photos and videos combined) in a single folder. It takes forever to load on Windows, the Finder often crashes when trying to view it on a Mac and using a web browser is almost impossible. I 100% recommend some sort of automatic sorting into at least year then month, if not by day as well if you take a lot of photos.

 

I do also like Yuikol's idea to separate by device as well. I wouldn't personally use it as I only take photos with a single device, but I can see it being very useful for many.
