Re: Disable camera uploads

Hey @Fiskern, if your photos continue to be automatically uploaded when you connect your mobile device to your computer, can you try changing the AutoPlay Settings? 
You can do this by:
  1. Clicking on the Dropbox icon in your menu bar or system tray.
  2. Going to the gear icon. 
  3. Selecting Preferences…
  4. Navigating to the Import tab.
  5. You should have an option regarding your AutoPlay Settings in the Camera Uploads section
Let me know if this helps!
