Choosing your own upload folder for camera uploads from phones

New member | Level 2

I see this issue from 2 years back - is it possible to choose the folder that your camera automatically uploads to? I have 2 devices and I want the images to upload into my own folders - NOT the CAMERA UPLOADS folder???

I know I can take picture and have them automatically put in my dropbox.  But is there a setting where I can choose which specific folder in dropbox they are to be uploaded to?

The reason for this is I am trying to share a folder with anoher person and have both our phones upload to the same folder.  Is that possible?

Hey @PatricF, kindly note that I moved your message under this thread, so as to keep all the relevant feedback under the same chain if that’s okay with you. While this isn’t currently an available feature, you could give this idea a small push by upvoting 🗳️ its implementation. 
 
From there, it would be worth noting that you could share a folder with your colleague granting them Edit rights & you could both upload the content you wish to share. 
 
Thanks again for choosing Dropbox & I'm always here in case you'd like to share your thoughts or feedback; have a wonderful rest of your day ahead until we talk again!

Hi Jane,

Thank you for your answer. 

I did give the other person Edit rights but she doesn't automatically upload to my shared folder.  She has to manually copy her pictures to my own camera upload folder.

Thanks for clarifying @PatricF; let me reiterate my previous message a bit, as it would make matters a bit clearer! 
 
Kindly note that I’ve also advised proceeding with the manual upload, as the Camera Uploads folder is unique on an account & it’s not currently possible to upload to it from more than one accounts Patric. Nevertheless, feel free to hit that 👍 (thumbs up) button on the OP if you’d like to see that feature in the future, just so as to give your idea a bit more visibility. 
 
I hope that this makes a bit more sense, however please let me know if you have any follow-up questions!

This may be a tricky question but I will do my best to explain. I have serveral folders in my Drop box account. In my account, I have my "Camera Uploads" turned on and I was curious to know if I was to leave the 'Camera Uploads" switch on if those pictures can go into a specific folder that I want them to download into. I share the drop box with several people from work and we do not want out pictures ending up in the same area, we want them to go into each of our specific folders. Any advice will help!
