Dropbox now uploads photos and gives you more free space!

Dropbox-LogoDropbox announced an update to its Android app on Friday that automatically syncs a user’s photos on the phone. A complementary update to the desktop app also auto-syncs photos stored on cameras or SD cards.

The service will be added to Apple’s iOS soon, Dropbox said.

On Android, the photo-upload function mirrors one already built into phone: Google+ already can be set to automatically upload photos and store them in the cloud. On the other hand, Google won’t allow any photos over 2,048 pixels wide, so high-resolution cameraphone images won’t be stored on Google+ in their full resolution.

However on Dropbox they are uploaded at original size and full quality, and saved to a private folder called Camera Uploads in your Dropbox

Users will receive 500MB of Dropbox space, for free, just for downloading the app. As users upload more photos, the available space will increase, up to a total of 3GB, the company said.

So if you have not signed up for dropbox yet, use this link and get an extra 250 MB of space on top of the 2.5GB you will get normally.
