Camera upload from multiple iPhones

Level 4

While syncing my wife's iPhone I activated camera upload to dropbox. After the sync I moved her photos to a newly created Sub folder to keep our photos separate. I neglected to realize that now anytime I plug her phone in it will re-upload ALL her photos again.

Is there any way to avoid this? Can I, "A" direct future syncs of her iPhone to her photos folder in dropbox? or "B" just tell Dropbox to no longer sync her photos without impacting the syncing of my photos?

First, no apology necessary. The same circumstances still prevail, exactly as described above. Any thoughts?

Has Dropbox or the community answered your question? Is this possible to do? I have a family of 4 that I am recommending they get the 99 dollar a year but it 's important that they can do the same thing you are asking. Also can Carousel iPhone app be set to their photos and not the entire library of photos?

Unfortunately I have not received an answer from either Dropbox or the forum. The way I'm currently doing it is after each import of my wife's photos I sort by date, select them all and drag them into her folder, overwriting the previously uploaded photos. It's a ridiculously simplistic and annoying workaround but it beats having her phone crash one day and loosing ALL her photos. Cause of course that would be my fault somehow.

Hi Bob, How do you sort by date? All I got if I sort by date, it just showing the date taken. Not the date imported to the PC which I am trying to find out now.

Halim, I'm on a Mac, and in the finder window I have the option to sort by "date modified" which, with rare exception corresponds to "date added". If you're on a PC I'm afraid I can't be of much help.
