I use Dropbox for my photos, but is there a way to not keep duplicates?

Hey there, @Ldft.
If you are using the automatic camera uploads feature, this will be able to track which photos and videos have been uploaded to your Dropbox account via this method.
However, if you have uploaded a photo manually from your camera roll into your account, the camera uploads will not recognize this and you will see the photo uploaded again. If this is the case, you can simply delete on of the copies.
Otherwise, if this does not seem to hit the mark, please check out this article to help identify the cause of the duplicates so we can prevent it happening again.
Let me know if you have any other questions, or if your situation is slightly different to anything mentioned in the article above then please let me know a little more detail (eg. are the duplicates in the same location, are you using the camera uploads etc).
