You know , I cannot wait to test this out. I have been using Flickr techniques that William Johnson and I collaborated on to figure out but this looks even better to me! I cannot wait to try my first Dropbox photo adding iPad post this week! Neat! Thanks, William Johnson! Oops. I think I just got it to work TWICE !

I dropped and dragged over 800 photos into Dropbox on my iMac and they synced automatically with my iPad. These are photos that I first upload to Picnic.com to adjust and add my name on the photo. I save them in My Documents and then simply drag and drop into Dropbox and they are then made available to the iPad.
