If you don't see some of your photos on the Photos tab, they might be missing information about when they were taken.
A digital photo usually has various pieces of information embedded in it, including the date and time it was taken. Dropbox uses this information to arrange your photos. If a photo's date is missing or incomplete, the photo will be sorted by the date it was last modified.
Here are some other reasons why your photos or images might not appear on the Photos tab:
- We filter out image files that are less than 15 KB or that are in .png format. These are usually icons or thumbnails, so we assume you don't want them cluttering up your Photos tab.
- If you're a Dropbox business customer, remember that the Photos tab will only display photos that are stored in your personal Dropbox account.
