Windows/Mac: Dropbox's latest experimental build adds the ability to share screenshots you take instantly, an iPhoto import tool for Macs that will automatically bring your iPhoto library into Dropbox, and a "move to Dropbox" menu option to help you back up your files to the cloud.
The latest build, designed to get feedback from bleeding edge users, goes a long way towards making Dropbox the photo management solution you've always wanted. The update includes a new feature that, when enabled, automatically routes any screenshots you take to your Dropbox folder and copies the public share link to your clipboard immediately -- all without any extra steps. If you frequently take and share screenshots, it's a welcome feature.
As well, Mac users who use iPhoto 7.0 or higher to manage photos can use the build to move whole iPhoto albums and libraries into Dropbox and turn them into sharable, public galleries on the web. Finally, the build adds a right-click menu item to files and folders to "Move to Dropbox", which makes it easy to back up or move any file on your system anywhere to your Dropbox folder without dragging and dropping. The update also features new compression tools behind the scenes, which improves upload and download time for large files.
The build is available now for Windows, Mac and Linux (although there aren't many new features for the Linux users, sadly.) Hit the link below to grab it from the Dropbox forums and give it a try.
