DropBox is one of the most widely used cloud storage system on internet, lots of people us it on their desktops and on mobile platforms too so that they can easily sync your files and folder and then you have access to your files and folders from your desktop and mobile phone.

But DropBox lacks a very important feature and its that it wont allows you to perform certain action automatically, means on DropBox you have to do manually every work like uploading deleting, editing and so on. It act just as on online storage system and many times its nothing more for many guys.

But Dropbox Automator is an online web service which allows you to perform certain actions automatically, like if you put some images on a folder on your DropBox account then it will automatically upload it to your Facebook or Flickr account (you must need to link your account first).


To get started you just need to visit the site from below link and then link your DropBox account with it, it uses 0Auth means you don’t have to provide your logins to any third party so your credentials will be safe.

Once you allow it to have access to your dropbox account, next you need to select a folder to apply actions and then click on Next,

Now you will have lots of actions to perform automatically like :-


  • Convert to PDF
  • PDF to TXT
  • Upload to Google Docs
  • Upload to Slideshare
  • Sign PDF (electronic signature)


  • Upload to Facebook
  • Upload to Flickr
  • Downscale
  • Convert image
  • Rotate image
  • Write text on image
  • Photo effect
  • Stamp a logo on the image
  • Stamp a map on the image
  • Stamp a “dislike” on the image

Any file

  • e-mail
  • Zip file
  • Save it in Dropbox
  • Rename
  • Upload to FTP-Server
  • Encrypt file
  • Decrypt file


Once you selected any action then finally click on Add Action button and you are done. I had personally tested it to convert any PDF uploaded by me to a Text file and it work like a charm.
