Dropbox update adds screenshot sharing and one-click import for iPhoto libraries

Dropbox will now upload any and all screenshots you take on PC or Mac to the cloud for immediate sharing. It's an extremely simple but long-awaited feature that, in lieu of official support, has largely been handled by third-party apps like puush — until today. But now you can do away with the extra software, as Dropbox's own solution is finally here. It works exactly as you'd expect: after capturing a screenshot, a link to the file is automatically copied to your clipboard. Like the company's automatic camera upload feature, screenshot sharing can be turned off at your convenience. And while backups of your recent camera photos are nice, Dropbox wants to make it easier to put your entire photo collection in the cloud. Users on OS X can now import their complete iPhoto library to Dropbox with a single click.
