Samsung Galaxy S8+ I delete photos from my gallery to free up space, but Dropbox puts them back?

Level 2

I've deleted photos from my phone TWICE, but Dropbox puts them back on my phone.

I need to free up space on my phone, Once the photos are on Dropbox I do NOT want them taking up space on the device. 

HOW can I STOP Dropbox from putting EVERY photo in my Dropbox/Camera Uploads folder BACK ON MY DANG PHONE???  Please HELP?

Hi there, @David L.93
 
Initially, please bear in mind that the camera uploads feature adds photos from your Camera Roll folder to your Camera Uploads folder. 
 
However, the photos don’t sync back to your mobile device’s folders unless you manually download them. 
 
You can also find more info about the mobile app here and its storage in this link.  
 
If you’re still having trouble with this though, do let me know and I’d be more than happy to have a more in-depth look into this. Cheers! upside-down face
