Browser multi select photos

On the Photos page, I want to select multiple ranges of photos. CTRL and SHIFT do not work, using the keyboard does not work, using the check marks or clicking next to the photos does not work, setting to a List view is not an option I can see.

 

How do I multi select in the browser?

 

I have used search here and Google, all answers I found to this question are related to older interfaces and not to the current Photos interface.

Camera Uploads is being used, yes.

That is unless you are a Business customer in which case there is no Camera Uploads feature and so they do not automatically upload.

Make sure you are at www.dropbox.com/photos

 

Move your mouse over the photos and a check box appears

 

Click the check box and the rest of the images from the same day retain the box for you to select more. The selected photo then highlights in blue.

Thanks for the reply! Just to make sure I understand you; there is no multi select and what you describe is just clicking all the check boxes, in my case 2700 clicks in stead of two clicks while holding shift, or do I misinterpret your answer?

Sorry, yes, you are correct.

There is no multi-select.... I read it as you want to select multiple images NOT multiple at the same time.

One thing to remember though is that the photos page is just a page showing the photos from all over your Dropbox directories. So, if they are in one folder you can just edit/tweak them in there instead.

Sounds good, but the Camera Uploads is not being used anymore right? I wonder where the automatically uploaded photos from my iPhone go at the moment.
