How do I change it to where it will only let camera shots go into dropbox and not my screenshots along with it on my HTC one

Are the screenshots saved in the same folder as your 'regular' pictures? I don't have a One, but in my phone the screenshots don't sync with DropBox, but they are stored in a different folder.

This is something I don't like about Dropbox on the One. I haven't used auto sync on other Android devices so I don't know if this happens as well.

The weird thing is that Dropbox is supposed to monitor the photo folder only but the folder, where the screenshots are stored gets synched as well.

I normally delete them from Dropbox as I don't make mush but it would be nice to not have them auto synched.

My screenshots folder doesn't sync to dropbox. It must be a setting in dropbox itself as I don't see a setting in the gallery.

What method are you using to take your screenshots? Power + Volume Down button? It depends on how you take the screenshot, the picture could be saved in different folders...

I also take them with Power + VolDown. They saved in a folder called screenshots in the root of the SD card (internal storage).

Dropbox doesn't have an option, just enable or disable the auto synching.
