The extra storage is part of a new automatic camera upload tool for Dropbox. The PC and Mac utility was in beta until now and automatically uploads photos to a private Camera Uploads in your Dropbox account once you connect a camera, smartphone, tablet or SD card. There’s also a version of the feature incorporated in Dropbox’s Android app.
Dropbox had offered the smallest amount of free storage services among its rivals with 2GB. The extra space brings it on the par with Google Drive, Box.net, and SugarSync.
