I configured the automatic photo upload to upload only the photos in this one folder (internal memory/dcim/Camera). In that folder are roughly 500 files.
What happens is that the photo upload starts uploading thousands of photos from (SD-Card/Fotos/…) and uploads all of them into the one Cryptomator folder. I started deleting all photos which are from other folders. But this is cumbersome and additionally - after I deleted them, Cryptomator uploads the same files again. So this will probably be a never ending story.
I checked the options, but do not find anything in that direction. Did I overlook something?

You didn’t overlook anything, the feature is extremely frustrating.
Worse, if you download a photo from a vault to your download folder, it will be re-uploaded to your automatic photo vault, generating duplicate files.
All of this could have been solved by allowing the user to choose one or more folders to allow automatic uploads from. Even the choice between 1 folder and all folders would be a massive improvement.

Unfortunately, it is not possible. This has been requested a long time ago and is demanded by users frequently. However, it doesn’t seem like this is or was in development focus recently…

As a user, I want to specify the source folder used in the aut
… o photo upload to exclude some of them.
I have enabled automatic photo upload and it seems to work. However not just on my camera photos but for all images on my phone. For example the vault now also includes hundreds of cover images from my music app. Can I prevent this and only upload actual camera photos?
Right now it’s all or nothing - can we have an option to specify from which folders photos should be uploaded? I’d like to upload only “normal” photos, not screenshots or memes that are saved in different folders (other than DCIM).
I would like to have the possibility to define the folders individually that should be considered by Automatic Photo Upload feature. Currently all images on the mobile phone will be uploaded, but I only want to backup my own photos/images made with the Smartphone camera and not images from messengers like WhatsApp etc. Most of those images are in bad quality due to compression or I am simply not interested to backup them.
It is ok to consider all images by default for Automaic Photo Upload, but…
@SailReal Can you please provide an update on this?

I can only second that request.
