    I had set up dropbox as my upload option. Has this changed? Do I have to use iCloud? I haven't used iCloud almost at all. I don't see the option to upload to dropbox. I upload my photos to my Mac Pro 10.10.5. 3.46 32GB. Now it just says there are no photos to find.

    Thanks! I forgot about the app. I clicked on it and it started loading the photos into dropbox. THEN I was able to upload them to MP. I don't know what might have changed in the settings, but this is the second time this week Ive had to manually do something to get them to upload.

    There should be a switch in the Dropbox settings for the pics to upload automatically.

    I've always kept that off though for two reasons. There are some times I don't want photos to upload because it's either sensitive or just a temporary photo I intend to delete shortly. But the biggest reason is that Dropbox wants to have location services on ALL the time.

    That's an absolutely stellar way to kill your battery real fast. So, I do it manually. Which works for me because photos only get uploaded when I intend them to be by opening the app.

    But it seems like I have to do this every time now. I have to open my dropbi=ox app and wait for dropbox to upload the photos, THEN it will upload to the MP. Hm.
