Dropbox Adds Auto-Import from Your Camera

Dropbox has recently released a beta build for Mac, Windows and Linux users. The new Dropbox software is released with a cool feature to the cloud-storage service known as automatic photo uploads.

Interestingly, the new feature has its hand on one of the iCloud’s most tempting new features known as ‘Photo Stream’.

It is through Photo Stream that Apple has managed to enable users of iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to access photos from inside iPhoto, Aperture or Windows Explorer automatically. This in turn allows the users to backing up photos in their computers along with cloud.

The same goes for the new Dropbox photo upload feature. The new feature is currently in the desktop app of the latest Experimental Forum Build.

On enabling the app, you just need to plug your camera or memory card into the device to automatically import the photos and movies and directly upload the content to Dropbox.

We have got the chance to test the new feature on iPhone 4S. Instead of connecting to the Aperture/iPhoto or any other camera utility, we tested a new auto-import feature by utilizing an SD card from a Polaroid Z340 that we had in our office.

The following message appeared on the screen on inserting the SD card:
