    Not sure how to send my photos from iphoto to dropbox. Can only seem to upload the ones from "photos" on the ipad. Is it me?

    The only way I found to send pictures from iPhoto app to Dropbox is one by one:

    Choose the picture, then tap the arrow (upper right corner) to see this:


    image-2335493049.jpg

    Choose "Open In"

    Here, tap "Selected"

    Tap "Dropbox", and this will happen:

    Save the picture after choosing the folder you prefer.

    I don't use iPhoto - but could you save all the photos from it to your Camera Roll (the Photos app)? Then, open Dropbox and select all those pictures you saved to be saved to Dropbox (you can put the pictures wherever you wish in Dropbox - even make a new folder).

    Might be faster than one-by-one from within the iPhoto app?

    Agreed.
    If you want them all stored in Dropbox, you can set up Camera Upload in the Dropbox app, and every time you open it, pictures are automatically uploaded from the Photo app (not iPhoto).

    Thanks for your replies. It's the edited version from iphoto I'm trying to save to dropbox. May have to go with one at a time.
    Thanks

    What kind of files are they? Dropbox can open jpeg/jpg, tiff and gif files.

    Thanks have it sorted, had changed the file name in error. Have sent to camera roll and made new folders. Something I read on dropbox said you can only send multiple photos from the photo folder but seems you can send from any you make. Really appreciate your help!
