    My Macbook HD has a short space and I got 1TB in Dropbox, also I have a large quantity of photos in my IPhoto; The IOS message about the initialization space it's almost full has botter me a lot. So, what I'm trying to do is; find out a way to save all my photos into dropbox instead in local HD.

    I would like to set up iphoto to search for photos into a dropbox folder instead of local folder. Anyone knows how to do it?

    Thank you.

    Dropbox keeps a local copy in the Dropbox folder so that approach cant save you any space.

    My advice is to buy an portable/mobile external hard drive like THIS. :apple:

    Seeing as dropbox keeps a local copy (as in, you have a copy of what's in selected dropbox folders on your computer) you wouldn't save any space at all.
