Dropbox killed the public link feature on March 15th, I fear that this workflow might not work again since the images are embedded in a webpage and there is no direct link to the image anymore. I wish somebody will prove me wrong..

Oh man, sad day! What's the best next way of doing this? Maybe some sort of workflow that updates to imgur or something?

Here is a new workflow version that I'm still testing. If you'd like to try it download it here.


Note that you have to configure the workflow in Alfred Preferences as seen below:




Thanks Dropbox. Not only are the images gone but all links are dead. Any way to download v2.0?


(Or any way to make jpg the default in 1.0?)

This workflow doesn't work in Alfred 3 because of hard-coded Alfred 2 paths in the q_workflow.script file. I've updated those for the new paths, but now I'm getting another script error:

Screenshot 2.0: Download Now


Is this updated workflow supposed to work with the *newer" dropbox versions? It seems not to work on my side :/ 

The description says "Note that you can set any folder, like "/Users/MY NAME/Pictures/", but the URL or shortened URL will not work." - so I guess this wont work anymore? What is this update about? Can't find any changelog unfortunately.


@Carlos-Sz could you shed some light onto this, please? :)
