Direct Links to Dropbox Files with Workflow

I've been pilling up GIFs in a Dropbox folder because you never know when you gonna need a reaction shot. If you ever shared a Dropbox link you found the unpleasant surprise that it wraps the file in its own page, hindering how apps such as Twitter and Facebook parse them. Tweaking the link reveals the direct link and this simple Workflow macro does the task for me.

Direct Link

Converts a link to file shared by Dropbox into the direct link to the file.

This macro could be simpler, as in this 5-step example, but I'm willing to care more about the macros I release and take an extra time to handle multiple input sources and eventual errors. I hope this leads to a better experience for every user with less need to tweak the action for any purpose and so on.
