FilePane, more power for your drags and drops

There are a number of drag and drop utilities available for the Mac. They all work by inserting themselves in the drag and drop command chain, intercepting a drag event and then presenting their interface to receive and process the drop.

FilePane is an interesting take on this approach. Start a drag, when the FilePane window appears, drop your item on the pane. You’ll then have the ability to choose from a set of context sensitive options. Drag an image, you can resize, mail, share, or zip the image or, perhaps, make the image your desktop picture.

Drag text or documents and you can do all sorts of things. Convert to PDF, print, create new folders and documents, save and edit text in Safari and other apps, share, airdrop, and lots more.

MacWorld gave it 4.5/5 stars. Just saying.
