Dropbox on Monday added an automatic upload option for screenshots you take on your Mac or PC; a super simple feature, but one that Dropbox users have been clamoring for. On its blog, the cloud service even wonders itself why the option has never been available. “Stop wondering,” Dropbox’s Alicia Chen writes.
Similar to the company’s Camera Uploads feature, which automatically uploads photos from your device to the cloud, Dropbox’s new addition will save any screenshots and create a link to said screenshot; it’ll even copy that link to your clipboard, so you can instantly share it with friends and co-workers. Very handy for those who like communicating through pictures.
In addition, Dropbox also announced a new piece of software that will import your iPhoto library directly to the cloud service, giving users some freed up space on their computer. If nothing else, uploading your pictures to the cloud will give you extra piece of mind in case something goes terribly wrong with your computer.
