I am having the same issue with my automatic Dropbox photo uploads from my iPhone 11 Pro. When I take photos using anything but a normal 1x perspective (i.e. 0.5 wide angle or 2x zoomed), though my phone only stores the photo one I took, Dropbox finds, creates, and uploads an original version the iPhone stores behind the scenes, as well as the "edited" version which is really just the single photo I snapped. Dropbox is somehow deconstructing the single photo file and reconstructing two photos from the one I took, and uploading these two separate files. I don't really care about the storage because it's pretty cheap for 1 TB, and despite being an active photographer, I still have plenty of Dropbox space, but the annoyance of having two photos when I've only taken one is really a non-starter. It's not easy knowing which of the two versions I intended to use making downloading and use of these things a waste of time. I have seen Dropbox continually explain a work-around that amounts to them explaining that we should "apply the filter (the edit) after the Dropbox upload" which is of course ludicrous. The only way we could do that would be to upload a photo we have not yet taken. We are not manually applying a filter...we're simply taken a photo using a wide angle, or a zoom mode. If iPhone considers this a "filter", that's fine, but Dropbox should not construe this as something we as users consider important with respect to the value of seeing or possesing a non-wide angle, or non-zoomed in version of the single photo we just took. It would be the same thing as Dropbox also uploading a black & white version of a color photo because they considered the color-version "a filter" or "edit" of the photo I took. We're not interested in Dropbox creating two or more versions of a single photo. Re-read that sentance and add my request to remove this "feature" as it has no benefi, and some of us who are experiencing this will likely leave because of it. We have options.
