Your default photo-sharing site? Dropbox

November 7th, 2013

Cloud-based file-sharing service Dropbox has rapidly grow to be a favorite of computer users due to its simplicity and power. But these days Dropbox has got a new mission, according to TechCrunch writer Matthew Panzarino. As outlined by him, the company now hopes to become the cloud’s default photo-sharing service. And, thanks to a new Mac app that automatically detects, uploads and produces shared links for the screenshots you create on your computer, Dropbox is one step closer to completing this mission.


Panzarino writes that this new Dropbox feature is only going to benefit a subset of users, those including journalists, app developers and heavy Twitter users taking loads of screenshots. But that's not important. What's important is the fact that Dropbox is taking another step to becoming the top photo-sharing service on the Web.

A future of ease?

This will make your life easier, by the way. Wouldn’t it be easy to have Dropbox detect that photo you just took on your smartphone and upload it automatically to your Dropbox account? That day might not be far-off.


It's difficult to predict the future, but it does look sunny for Dropbox. The cloud is huge among consumers these days. And few services have taken advantage of that quite like Dropbox.
