It seems as though Dropbox is testing a way to easily import your photos and videos to Dropbox. What do you need to do? Just plug in your memory card or connect your camera to your computer. This will send your photos and videos to all of your other Dropbox connected devices. As you may know, Dropbox is available on Windows, Linux, or Mac platforms.
However, the feature is only available in a Beta environment so I don’t recommend converting just yet unless you have these photos backed up. However, this may prove to be a good solution for non-iCloud users or faculty looking for a place to back up your non-college related photos/videos since FS1 or FS2 is only for college-related data. If you try it, let us know how it works.
