Get 3GB Of Free Space On Dropbox By Using Camera Upload

If you missed out on the last free online storage space offer from Dropbox, here's another one you can grab: a total of 3GB of extra space just by using the Camera Upload feature to put photos and videos into Dropbox.

If you took advantage of the beta offer in February (February 2 to 23) when Dropbox offered 5GB of extra space, you can still upload your photos and videos and get the max 5GB instead of the 3GB, but it doesn't look like you can grab an additional 3GB on top of that (sorry!).

Everyone else can bump up their storage space to a total of 3GB by using the Android app's camera upload feature or the Camera Upload feature from the desktop application; you'll need the experimental forum build (1.3.4 or higher). The camera upload feature automatically uploads photos and videos to your Dropbox account.

Dropbox will add 500MB of free space the first time you add a photo or video using the feature, then for every 500MB you upload, another 500MB of extra storage.

See the Dropbox help page below for more info or the comments in our previous post about the 5GB offer for some useful tips on getting enough photos and videos uploaded.

    I signed up with 'Box', you get 50gig right out of the... well, box!! FREE
    Plus it works really well too.

      The amount of space Box gives you is great but their Desktop sync tool, which you get for free with DropBox, needs a $15/mo business account :-( So you're limited to uploading with their web interface...

        or use the synced folder on your PC(s) .... in the same way you would any drive . Do you use Dropbox ? I use it every day every hour probably every 10 minutes for work updates ... brilliant service ...

          I'm referring to the synced folder when I say Desktop sync tool...
