I moved my Photo Library to an external hard drive; how do I also back it up on Dropbox?

I had to move my Photo Library to an external hard drive because my MacBook has 120 GB and I have about 300 GB of photos. So, I changed the location of the library to an external hard drive, but now I am wondering...ALL of my photos are on the external hard drive, and if that is the location, does that mean time machine isn't backing up the new photos that go onto the external hard drive? How can I also make sure dropbox is backing up the photos? I don't like having all my photos in one place, obviously, but I cannot figure this storage situation out. Please help...

    You will need to copy those files into a Dropbox cloud folder. Go to Dropbox in your browser, create the name of the folder you want to store them in, then copy your photos there. The Dropbox cloud will not automatically synch with your external drive, you will need to copy them over as you add new ones.
