How can I stop Dropbox from uploading all my photos?

Level 2

I do not want Dropbox uploading all of my photo, any for that matter. I got a new phone and it uploaded all my photo. I was so upset. How can I turn that off. I have a specific use for dropbox as a student and it's not for photos.

It has only done it because you've told it to @MasterC - its turned off by default. However, its easy enough to change. Simply alter the 'Camera Uploads' setting.
