Zapier lets you connect autoRetouch with Cloud Spaces like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc., so you can automate your work and have more time for what matters most—no code required.
To set up the automation you need a autoRetouch and a Zapier Account.
Note: You will need to pay to use Zapier. You can find the pricing here: Zapier Pricing
To process one image it takes 2 Tasks inside Zapier.
Step by Step Guide
This Guide will show you how to set up a “Send new images to an autoRetouch Workflow” Template provided on Zapier.com. To receive the finished result back to your cloud storage you also need to set up the related “Upload newly retouched image” Template. The process is similar.
1. Select the autoRetouch/Zapier Template
Choose one of our pre-configured Zapier Templates to start setting up the automation.
Note: To send a Image from a Cloud Storage to autoRetouch and receive the retouched image back you need to set up both Zapier Templates.
2. Connect your Cloud Storage and create folder
Create an Input and Output Folder inside your Cloud Storage (OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.). The automation will be triggered as soon as a new image is uploaded to a specified folder in the cloud. The second Zapier Template will upload the result image to a specified folder.
Connect the Zapier automation to the according folder.
(Note: If asked to include file object in Zapier, select YES)
3. Connect to autoRetouch and select Organization
Connect your autoRetouch Account to Zapier and select the Organization and the workflow you want to automate.
Note: The workflow still has to be set up inside our autoRetouch Web App.
Map Cloud Storage and autoRetouch fields
4. Map Cloud Storage and autoRetouch fields
Use the following File Name and File Objects inside Zapier:
|Cloud Storage||File Name||File|
|Dropbox||“File Name”, “File Ext”||“File”|
5. Set Zapier automation active
Set the Zapier automation on active. The Upload from the Cloud Storage to autoRetouch will automatically be triggered if a new image is added to the specified folder.
My Google Drive Images are not automatically uploading!
If the modification date of the new file is older than the last newest item, the Google Drive app will not recognise it as new. This is a known issue of the Google Drive app and haven’t been fixed yet.
Can I upload a file to autoRetouch and download it back to my Cloud Storage in one Zapier?
No. Due to the architecture of autoRetouch, it is not possible to create a Zapier automation that includes uploading to autoRetouch and downloading to your cloud storage. For this process you will need to use the two templates available here.
Can I trigger more then one workflow within one Zapier automation?
No. You will need to create separate workflows in autoRetouch for each variant of the image you wish to create, which you will need to trigger through multiple Zapier automations.
How much Tasks does one image cost me?
As you need two Zapier automations (One to send the image and one to receive it back to your system) you need two Zapier Tasks per Image.
Is there an alternative way to connect autoRetouch to my System?
Yes. You can always use our public API to connect your systems directly to autoRetouch.
