Just remove them from your Dropbox folder then right click on the Dropbox icon at the top of your screen then you will see a little gear at the bottom right go to that to Preferences / Import and turn off Camera Uploads
Thanks , Mike... I removed them , and put the folder on my desktop. Then , I followed your instruction, but I can see no indication that the automatic import has been deactivated. When I right clic on the iconand go to preferences, it looks as though it's still set to import all photos from iphoto. On the meantime, how do I put these photos in iphoto? That's what I wanted to do inthe first place
OK don't move the Dropbox folder or you won't get the updates you want to get. There is a checkmark next to Enable under Import
To make sure your photos are gone go to the Dropbox website and login and delete them directty
To move them to iPhoto simply open iPhoto and go to File / Import to Library or just drag them to the Library
If I do want to upload photos and videos for work , do I want to uncheck that box?... I only want to make sure my private photos don't go I there when I'm trying to get them stored on my computer in iphoto.
When I moved the folder , it did leave dropbox...
Under General make sure Show Desktop notifications is set to on
What do you mean, "general?
If you are using the same device for work and personal photos you can't turn that off. It will ask each time for a new device and you can tell it to never upload photos from this device, but not if it is the same device.
Oh, ok! Thank you! x
