    In my S4 it was possible to show my Dropbox photos in Gallery, this doesn't seem possible with the S6, any ideas ?

    Thanks

    I'm having the same issue. Did they remove this functionality on the s6?

    I have the same issue. I also cannot see my Facebook pictures in the gallery anymore. When I go to "Accounts" in my phone settings, I cannot see the option anymore to sync the pictures. So it seems that this functionality has been removed. This is kind of strange, as there is not option to extend the storage so I do not want to store the pictures on my phone. I would rather use dropbox and facebook.

    Ros... I'm wondering though if that's exactly why the option is removed. When you could see them in the Gallery before... didn't the phone upload those photos so they were stored on the phone to be seen?

    When it syncs on my S4, it only syncs a thumbnail of the picture and not the whole picture itself. I find it handy to be able to see the pictures all in one place instead of having to switch app the whole time. So that is why I would think it would not be removed. But maybe you are right. Because in the end a lot of thumbnails also take up space. Would be nice to be albe to turn it on/off myself.

    I totally agree. I have a lot of contact pics assigned to contacts in outlook. I store those in a DB folder. It would be nice to be able to assign a pic to a contact direct from DB instead of having to upload that pic to the gallary and then assign it.
