This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

  1. Open the Dropbox app on your device
  2. Open the overflow menu (three vertical dots) and choose "Settings"
  3. Under "CAMERA UPLOAD" tap "Turn off Camera Upload"

If you've installed Dropbox's Carousel app, it takes over the upload of photos.

  1. Open the Carousel app
  2. Click the weird smiley face in the upper left; this opens the "Settings" menu
  3. Uncheck "Backup photos & videos" (or you can log out or uninstall the app)
