Can I transfer my pictures by folders from my iPad to my computer or can they only be individually uploaded?

iPad, iOS 6.1.3

    The Dropbox app has a very cool auto-upload process that will automatically upload photos from the iPad Camera Roll to Dropbox.


    1. First sign up for a free Dropbox account from your computer.

    2. Then, download the free Dropbox app on your iPad.

    3. Log in to the Dropbox app on the iPad with your new account and click on the Photos icon in the lower left corner of the screen (second one from the left).

    4. Select "Enable Camera Upload" and "Only Wi-Fi." The upload process will begin for all existing photos in the Camera Roll.


    From now on, all future photos taken by the iPad will automatically upload to the Dropbox folder. If you download the Dropbox app for your computer you will automatically see all of your photos on your computer.


    Hope this helps!

    You can accomplish this automatically with Photo Stream.


    Here's how:


    Although you can purchase more, Dropbox has limited storage space. If you take a lot of pictures it will fill quickly.

    Photo Stream does not count against you iCloud storage. It will hold photos for 30 days or 1000 photos whichever comes first but as long as you have it on your PC/Mac they will be there indefinitely.
