Currently in the process of moving all my files over to Google Photos. Wish this wasn't the case, but I'm happy to leave a company who no longer cares about those of us who got them to where they are today.
The original notification about the changes said (with no sense of irony, apparently)
"Creating a better photos experience
We’re continuing to work on new photos and file experiences on dropbox.com. As we learn more about how our users prefer to work with photos, we’ll launch improvements to the experience."
At the moment, as everyone agrees, its not "better".
And I think it's pretty clear that "how our users prefer to work with photos" is with shareable albums, not folders.
(Remember, DB, like you used to have ...)
Are we ever going to see any improvements that get us close to what we used to have? Or should I just cancel?
No, that was just PR bull**bleep**. It's pretty clear Dropbox has dropped any real support for photos. Sharing was the key.
BOOM!!!! There it is! Anyone else get this bull**bleep** email?
Now you can be like Jack.
What a joke.

Anyone else notice that one of the other vaunted features for the new level of account is “sharing controls” - which I’m taking to be passwords and expiry dates on links? Pretty sure I have them on my account at the moment so I wonder how long it is before they take those away too.
If you have them, you'll keep them. Only new Plus accounts won't have them.
Sort of like this then:
You can continue to access your private albums using Dropbox. To view your photos online, go to photos.dropbox.com.
To view your photos on the Dropbox Android app:
"If you have them, you'll keep them. Only new Plus accounts won't have them."
"If you like your doctor you can keep him...."
Nobody can trust what Dropbox says.
We were exhausted by all the frustrations so we built a solution for photographers and videographers, -- www.planetjuno.com --- . We know there are small bugs/ integration issues and a few features required. We aren't quite there yet but getting there.
We genuinely were just 2 people who thought that you should be able to look at your photo on a feed, grid or map..and share easily. We built the platform searching metadata, which is quite cool when you use the map. Take it easy on us, We aren't corporate machines, just wanted to try and build something we wanted.
Hopefully it helps you guys as well.
