You need to change it via altering the auto play settings:

Hey @BGK, welcome to our forum! 

I’d like to have a look at this. Can you send me a screenshot of the entire message you’re seeing? 

Thanks!

I am in a fit. I use the free version, and all my photos are uploading into Dropbox using my free memory. I see from previous instructions to go to the preference page,and under the import, select the box next to enable.

 

I noticed there is no box to do this and the only option is to either chose photos and videos, or just photos. Menaing all my photos go into dropbox and I don't want that. Does anybody have any ideas??

Can you post a screenshot?

It doesnt make any difference what version you are on.
