Straight from the dropbox site, a way to get 5gb free. Just so everyone can take advantage of this

"Hello Beta Testers!

A couple of more bugfixes. Not all of them are visible but we are fixing internal stuff that will make the client better.

During this beta period, we are also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you'll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 5GB total.

Where are my last 500M of bonus space?
Sorry, there's a bug in our code. We'll have it fixed within the next several days. There's nothing you need to do. Don't worry, you'll get your bonus.

FAQ on the Photo Upload feature.

Why didn't I get my free space for beta testing the latest forum build?

Can I manage files after they have been uploaded into my Camera Uploads folder?


Handle disconnecting devices on Windows 7 better.
Raise Progress window to top if you click on the tray menu and progress window is already open.
Other small fixes.
1.3 (Codename: Phoenix Down) Features

Importing of photos from cameras, phones, and SD cards.
Batch upload/download of files.
Mac OS X:
Linux x86_64:
Linux x86:


Clients 1.3.7 and earlier had an auto-update bug. Please install this version so that your client will stay up to date!
The photo import feature is not available on Mac 10.4 and Linux.
For Android devices, it's best to use "Connect as Disk Drive". HTC Sync will not work.
To import from iPhone, make sure to unlock your phone and enter your passcode before importing, otherwise it will claim to find no photos.
If importing from your iPhone on Mac gives an import error, try hard resetting it--hold down the power and the home button for 5 seconds. This will reboot the phone; it shouldn't change your settings or delete data.
On Windows, this feature relies on Autoplay. Please enable Autoplay to use this feature if you have disabled it.
On XP and Vista, it relies on the Windows Image Acquisition Service. If this service is not started, please start the service and reinstall Dropbox to use this feature. On WIndows Server, you may have to install the Desktop Experience feature.
On Windows 7, newer devices that rely on Device Stage (in the Control Panel) will not show Dropbox as an import option until you select "Change Program" for the default.
The Galaxy Nexus takes a lot of time to connect on OS X because it likes to pretend that every image on the device is a photograph. We now estimate how long it's going to take and show you that in the progress bar but it's usually in the order of minutes. We're working to see if this can be improved.
As usual, we strongly recommend making a backup of your Dropbox before upgrading to this build as we'll need a few weeks to be certain of its stability. We will rapidly release new builds as necessary to snipe the most common issues as they arise."

Use camera upload from the desktop application
To use the new feature, you'll need the Experimental Forum Build (1.3.1X) of the desktop application for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Once you plug in your camera or phone to your computer, you'll automatically be prompted to upload photos to your Dropbox folder. Select Import Pictures and Videos using Dropbox and your photos will automatically save to your Dropbox folder's Camera Uploads folder.
