Dropbox adds new file conversion tools and faster camera backups


Dropbox gets a number of interface changes alongside new tools and features. One of the most useful exclusions is a new file conversion feature that allows Dropbox users to convert images to PDFs in a variety of formats, such as JPEG and PNG. Video conversion support is coming soon. Dropbox also adds new features to its password management.

Automatic camera backups from your mobile phone, now available to Dropbox free-level users, will also see some improvements. Dropbox says downloads should now be faster and more reliable, and iOS now has the ability to specify exactly which folders should be automatically backed up (a feature coming to Android later this year). You can also save photos by automatically deleting photos after they have been backed up.

The network interface information box has also been redesigned.

The password management of the service that it did available free of charge to account holders in April will be updated to store credit and debit card information, while the password sharing feature announced in March is now coming. Dropbox’s password management is available to both its free and paid account holders, but free accounts are limited to storing up to 50 passwords.

Finally, online Dropbox updates its page navigation interface, making it easier to organize files by dragging and dropping. The info box has also been redesigned to provide more information about your files at a glance. Desktop users will also get a simplified interface from the notification area, “streamlined access to content, searches, file activity, and sync.”
