5GB free on Dropbox

I know a some you use dropbox to 'sync' your elibraries between devices, so an extra 5GB might be useful.

But...you have to use up all the "extra" space uploading pics and videos, if I read it right. I can't imagine coming up with a single 500 MG of pictures, let alone 5 GB worth.

Few thousand book covers would do that pretty nicely.

Upload your pictures and videos and then delete them to free up the space.


Ways to get 5GB of pictures and videos:

1. find a picture or video, make multiple copies, rename and upload

2. upload the same pictures/videos to different sub-folders.

3. point your camera (phone, whatever) at a wall and set to record at maximum quality video while you're sleeping or reading. When done, use the file as described in 1 or 2.

Wow! My "My Pictures" folder is close to 6 GB. And I don't consider my photographing extreme in any way at all. I actually curse a lot because I forget to bring my camera to different occasions...

Double-wow! My Pictures folder stacks up at 43Gb - and that's just pictures, not movies... Hopefully someone will be along in a minute to make me seem like a half-baked parsimonious amateur...

I couldn't find 500mb worth of videos and pictures to upload without resorting to stealing someone else's.

I've got about 4GB worth of family photos collected over the past 5 years and a little less than 2 GB of videos. That's not including photos taken with our smartphones. With photos being 2MB~5MB a piece, it's pretty easy to max out storage.

I got given an extra 3Gb on Dropbox for installing and using the Dropbox android app. It didn't say anything about restricting it to video and photos.

Mind you I'm still only using ~300Mb on dropbox. It's very useful but slow upload speeds put me off using it for large amounts of data.

I was getting around 400~500KB/s uploading photos on my desktop. Not sure about the Android app.

Wow this is great thanks! I use dropbox for my clients to download so this would be very useful without having to pay.

Are there any other hosting sites people recommend for holding photos? I do freelance photography soemtimes.

cheers

I should have been clear the upload speed limit is on my internet connection not Dropbox itself.

6-7 minutes of video on my iPod Touch is 500 MB. Pretty easy to make videos that add up to 5 GB on your camera or smartphone. Then you allow the Dropbox beta to upload the videos and they give you new space as the data syncs (which takes a while for that much data, I recommend setting your upload to unlimited). Afterwards you can delete all the videos and disable the photo uploading in your Dropbox preferences and you have oodles of new Dropbox space.
