    Trying to setup a automatic download from Dropbox to iPhoto on Yosemite and it appears to be broken. Set it up on my other machine running Maverick with no issue. Has anyone else run into this same issue on Yosemite?

    Any reason you can't take the workflow from Mavericks and switch it over?

    Or, have you tried remaking it? There's some new things in Automator this time around, I bet they've changed some things.

    Oh, and it's beta. Hehe.

    You might have to do it in AppleScript instead for that reason.

    Yeah I figured it makes sense it's a beta. What's weird is that it works part of the way. It sees the image uploaded to Dropbox and then opens iPhoto buy doesn't transfer it after that point.

    Or Javascript, which is apparently supported now in place of AppleScript, though of course that'll be even more beta, if it's even in the developer preview yet.
