Automatic deleting photos after uploading them to Dropbox.

Automatic deleting photos after uploading them to Dropbox.

I'm currently uploading my photos from my phone to my dropbox.
Is there any way to have them deleted from my phone once uploaded, so I wouldn't have to select and delete?

No, Dropbox doesn't do that. You have to delete them from your phone yourself.

 

They used to have a companion app called Carousel that was a much better implementation of the automatic uploads, including the ability to purge photos from your device once uploaded, but they disconitnued it along with nearly all of the decent photo features.
