Make your masterpiece: 4 Dropbox-connected apps for creativity


Published on October 07, 2014

If creativity is in your DNA, Dropbox is the perfect place to bring it to life. And with Dropbox-connected apps, there are plenty of ways to express yourself.

You can easily connect Dropbox and access your stuff in over 300,000 apps — for everything from note-taking to painting to photo retouching.

Here are a few apps to get your creative juices flowing:

Vimeo (Web)

Boasting a passionate community and no ads, Vimeo is the place to watch, upload, and share videos. Connect Dropbox to your Vimeo account, and choose files to upload individually or have videos automatically uploaded from the folder of your choice.

Adobe Photoshop Mix (iPad)

Photoshop Mix gives you the power of desktop app image editing — on the go. Combine images, change backgrounds, and more with this mobile complement to Photoshop CC. Connect Dropbox and you can use any of your photos to create a mix of your own.

Procreate (iPad)

Can’t choose between paint, ink, or pencil? Get them all with Procreate, the Apple Design Award winner that puts the power of desktop illustration tools in your hands. Use your Dropbox to import and export brushes, textures, and swatches; save your projects; and even store videos of you creating artwork.

Notability (iOS, Mac)

Jotting down your ideas just got a whole lot easier. Notability lets you sketch, write, and type your thoughts into vibrant, hand-crafted notes, complete with photos and voice annotations. Connect Dropbox to import pictures, automatically back up your notes, and shuttle work between the Mac and iOS versions of Notability. Whether it’s video, music, photography, or anything else your mind conjures up, these apps can help put your ideas in motion.
