Sharing single photos from Photos app iOS 11.01

Can I SHARE (with share sheets) from Photos in iOS 11.01 (on iPad) to Dropbox (v66.2) if I don’t want to store ALL my Photos in DropBox but just individual items, such as a Screen recording? What settings do I need? Thanks for your useful product!

Hey @pellucid, welcome to our forum! 

First off, thank you for using our useful product! We’re glad you like it winking face
 
So, to disable the automatic uploads of your photos, you should turn off Camera Uploads from our app’s settings: 
  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Choose the Recents tab and tap the gear icon.
  3. Under Settings, select Camera Uploads.
  4. Toggle Camera Uploads off.

 

Now, I’m not sure what you mean by Share from Photos to Dropbox? If you’re trying to save a photo from your Photos into Dropbox, try this: 
  1. Open the Photos app
  2. Find the photo you want to upload
  3. Tap on the photo to view it
  4. Tap on the Export icon
  5. Choose Save to Dropbox (should be a gray icon)
  6. Choose the location in your Dropbox where you want to save the photo

 

That’s it! If I’ve missed something, please let me know. 
 
Thanks
