Can 'camera uploads' upload photos only from my camera folder?

Can 'camera uploads' upload photos only from my camera folder?

Hi, is there a way to automatically backup my camera roll from Android to Dropbox? I only want to backup the photos I take but cannot stop it from uploading every photo in every folder. 😔

Hi @ThaiBill, there isn't isn't a way to disable the backup of the screenshots in the automatic camera uploads feature, as it is included by default.

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!

Hi @ThaiBill, thanks for reaching out!

Our camera uploads feature actually uploads photos and videos taken from your 'camera' and your 'screenshots' albums on your mobile device.

Did you take a look at this feature? Are you seeing a different behavior?

Keep me posted!

Hi Hannah, thanks for the response. I have have tried this but was hoping to just back up my photos and not the screenshots too.

Why can't you stop Screenshot uploading it can't be that hard to implement a choice of folders to upload.
