FilePane - File Management Drag & Drop Utility

By Sergii Iamkovyi

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


FilePane is a lightweight, versatile multi-tool for quick file management.

It works with almost any selectable and draggable content from any app on your system and suggests various quick actions, based on the data you give it.
You can easily copy/move/create files and folders, edit/share/convert images and a lot more...

Just start dragging a file or text and drop it into "Drop Here" panel, showing near your cursor.

FilePane detects the file type and offers some quick actions for it.

With FilePane you can easily:

- crop, rotate, resize, convert, compress images on the fly;
- free hand drawing on your images and screenshots;
- share content (e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, Airdrop);
- set, store desktop pictures;
- quickly copy/move files to your custom popular destinations;
- copy file size or path to clipboard;
- see word and glyph count and various other handy options for highlighted text;
- converting Text documents and images to PDF;
- convert PDF into images (PNG, JPEG,TIFF and BMP);
- create new Folders, RTF, TXT, Excel and Word files, where you need them

Every single action is just one-two clicks away!

So FilePane, helps you increase workflow efficiency by adding file editing, sharing and management options to Drag-and-Drop.

The app has a minimalist, intuitive UI, which blends in well with Yosemite and El Capitan.

FilePane is not bound to Finder only, as it may seem at first glance. It works with other apps, too!

For example, in Safari, Chrome or other, you can easily save, edit, share, e-mail any image on the fly.
Or quickly sort/save/share/edit/ organise your e-mail attachments.

Customer Reviews


One of the most useful and well-thought-out tools in the app store.

Shockingly Useful & has quickly become my most valuable app !

I previosly purchased this app on sale from outside the official app store. I repurchased this when I saw it on sale with the sole reason being to support this developer by writing a review of my positive experience. Shortly after purchasing this app initially I had to factory restore my mac and after retsarting from scratch this very app gave me the message that my activation code had already been used. I contacted the developer to explain that this was the only computer I had used it on and my situation but that I also had planned to use it on other macs I owned. ( I hadnt realized initially my purchase was a single license ) The developer contacted me back immediatly even though it was in the middle of the weekend and solved my issue by not only resetting my license but also giving me an extra liscense to use on an additional mac. The amazing customer service on top of the app being all substance while creating a plethora of boosted productivity in everday general use has made this app my most necessary and appreciated purchase. I would reccomend it to everyone !

I had to Uninstall this because it interfered with Air Drop

I was so happy to be able to grab a 17 MB image and drop it into the FilePane email icon and have my compose mail form appear with the image at 51 KB. Oh happy days were in my future where I could skip the step of dropping images into Resize-it to get images to fit email, blogs etc. Then I tried to get a couple of images from my iPhone SE. That didn’t go well, so I tried AirDrop. It was unresponsive so I tried email and that didn’t work either. (After I did a complete uninstall, evrything worked again and the images from the SE showed up in my mail the next day)

It may be that this software worked with El Capitan, but I upgraded to Sierra and the problem may be the new operating system. There isn’t enough room here for me to give my review of Sierra, but I give it (Sierra) 2 stars. That is up from Maverics, Yosemite and El Capitan which all received a minus 2 stars. It could be the new upgrade bugginess is the problem with FilePane and I will certainly try it again when Sierra has settled down.
