How to move Apple Photos Library into Dropbox or to an external hard drive



So, if you are like me, your Apple Photos library is fairly large, but you also like to make sure you have it well and truly backed up in case anything untoward should occur. My Macbook only has a 250gb hard drive, and I need access to more than 250gb worth of files in my Dropbox on a regular basis, so I keep it on a 2tb external hard drive. As my Apple Photos library has increased in size I decided it would be good to move it to an external hard drive, and even better if I could move it into my Dropbox. That would mean not only do I have the iCloud backup of my photos and videos, but I would also have a Dropbox backup as well.

It’s easy to move the library itself, but if you want to connect it to iCloud it is a little bit more finicky. Here is how I did it.
