Carousel is similar to the photo management services available from Google+ and iCloud, though the way photos are presented or shared with users is slightly different.
Dropbox’s Carousel app is free and uses the same storage plan included in your Dropbox account. New users will receive 2 GB with the potential to earn more space from referrals. You can also purchase 100 GB for $99 a year.
Once you download the app and log in with your Dropbox credentials, the app will populate with photos stored in your Dropbox account and pulled from your device’s photo stream. While you can’t create custom albums, the app will group your images automatically by date and location. You can quickly browse through your images by using the slider at the bottom. You cannot select which images from your device upload to Carousel — everything is synced automatically.
Sharing and conversations
Carousel lets you select hundreds of photos to share with other
Carousel and Dropbox users, or with anyone else via email. To share individual photos, tap the checkmark within the thumbnail. To share entire events, tap the icon next to the event date or location. Other Dropbox members can save images you share with them at full resolution in their own accounts.
Images and messages you share are stored in your conversation view. Find it by tapping the bubble in the top-right corner. If you send an image via email to someone who is not a Dropbox member, that person can view the image and your note, but cannot respond to messages.
Hidden photos and videos
To hide a photo from your main view, tap to open it and swipe your finger down the screen. Photos need to be hidden individually. You cannot select more than one image to hide at a time. You can view hidden photos and videos through your settings tab
To delete images from Carousel and your Dropbox account, move them to your hidden photos and videos view, then tap the checkmark box in the top right, and tap delete on the bottom. You can also restore images to Carousel from this view.
