    Default Latest Dropbox Build Touts Screenshot Saving, File Moving, and iPhoto Imports


    The popular cloud storage and file synchronization service, Dropbox, recently released a preview build of its upcoming 2.3x desktop client. The new client shows off four new features including screenshot saving, file moving, and iPhoto imports. The experimental build version 2.3.12, originally spotted by MacStories, not only gives users a sneak peak at the forthcoming update, but also lets Dropbox users test out the new features in the wild.

    The first addition is a tool that automatically saves a screenshot to a user’s Dropbox. In the Mac version, when users take a screenshot, it is automatically uploaded to a special folder in their Dropbox. The uploaded image can be shared quickly as the public link to the created file is automatically copied to the OS X clipboard, which can then be pasted in any number of apps to send off collaborators.

    Dropbox has also implemented “Move to Dropbox” feature that ties in with contextual menus in OS X. When users command-click, or right click, on a file or folder, a new “Move to Dropbox” option will appear that links to their main Dropbox folder. The feature works with almost any file type and location in Finder.

    The “Import from iPhoto” feature uses iPhoto albums to create Dropbox albums for sharing and viewing online. Macs have to run iPhoto 7.0 or higher to take advantage of the functionality. Last but not least, the company promises “much faster” upload and download speeds for larger files, which should be a positive for many users as the service is constantly editing and syncing documents remotely.

    Those of you interested in trying out Dropbox experimental build version 2.3.12 for Mac can download the software from the Dropbox forums or via this direct link.

    Are any of you excited to try out the latest build of Dropbox?

    But very expensive storage unless you want 100GB. Even Microsoft offer lower price storage for 29GB or so!!

    I know it has been asked/said before Jon, but why do you spend so much time on an Apple forum promoting Android all the time? You have no life? Enjoy ruffling feathers? Jealousy? I mean, really?
