Default How do I reverse this preference in contacts?

Hi guys

When editing a contact and adding a picture to it, it used to give me several options, like whether I would like to add the picture from Album, Picture Editor, Picture Viewer, File Manager etc and then it would ask Once Only or Always...

Well somehow Dropbox got selected together with the Always option so whenever I want to add a photo to my address book it only now offers me Dropbox.

I can't figure out for the life of god how to reset or reverse that so that I can select photos from my album again...

Any help?

Please... Lol

Thanks!!

The only way which I know is to uninstall Dropbox form Android and install again, after that when you will select the pictures will appear all the options.

Yhea, I know, in this case working what way. If you do this with Whazzup, for example you want send a pic and you select Always with Album, in this case you don't have to uninstall Whazzup but just keep pushing the botton attachment and the option will appear. Should working that way for everything but actually is not.

Or you could go to SETTINGS > APPS and then "clear default" in the app you don't want to be the selected by default... Is not necessary to uninstall...

Ok, so try this, go to Whazzup, and try to send a picture to someone, whazz will ask you which album or whatever you want to use, select always and the Album which you like, now when you want to send a pictures you will always use the same app with the album which you selected by default.
Now go to Settings > Apps > Whazzapp and see in you can click on Clear Default, because to me is not working in that way, maybe with some app only.

Because the one you need to clear is not whatsapp... Should be the app that is by default opening the pictures... for example "Settings > Apps > "Gallery or media app opening the pictures by default in whatsapp" then "Clear default"... I hope I could make myself clearer this time...

I hope it helps
