Hey there @1445,
 
When you turn the camera uploads feature on, photos in your mobile phone’s Camera Roll and Screenshot folder will upload automatically to your Camera Uploads folder.
 
The Camera Uploads folder is just like any other folder on Dropbox account. This means that you should be able to copy and move photos to another folder as you would with any other.

You can find more info in this thread where I’ve previously listed the steps to move files from one Dropbox folder to another using the mobile app.
 
Let me know if you have any other questions!
