How to import my drop box photos

All of my photos are on Drop box. I see them on my computer in a folder called Camera Uploads and they are also in a Photos folder in the Drop Box website.
How do I get them into Mylio?

It is recommended that you perform a Copy Import to import any photos that are in your Dropbox folder. You can do this by going to File > Import > Copy, or you can drag and drop your photos/folders into the Mylio application window.

Setting up your Dropbox folder (or any folder being managed by a third-party cloud service) as a “watched” folder (known in Mylio as a “Source Folder”) is not supported. Doing so can cause a variety of issues, including:

  1. Import errors or the inability to import folders.
  2. Duplicate images in your synchronization services.
  3. Loss of data.

These issues arise when Mylio and the cloud service attempt to replicate the same data. This means that the folder and its contents may be either available to Mylio, or not, at different times. Some services may also have folder permissions that Mylio cannot access.
