Import photos taken on iPhone to iPhoto

This is a bit tricky. What you need to do is create a Sym link (Open Terminal Type "ln -s PATH TO AUTO IMPORT PHOTO PATH TO DROPBOX FOLDER") from the "Auto Import" folder within the iPhoto package (right click iPhoto Library from Finder and say "show package contents") to your Dropbox folder. Mine is in a folder called "Pictures" and I renamed the Sym link to "iPhotoImport" so the whole path within IFTTT is "Pictures/iPhotoImport." Just change that path to point to the Sym link you created. Now next time you open iPhoto it will import any photo that isn't already in there.
