OSX Automator

Today I started playing with “Automator”, a new program that came with OSX 10.4 (Tiger).

I am impressed, I was able to setup a task to take a screenshot of my workspace, resize it to a width of 800 Pixels, create a 128 pixel wide thumbnail, upload both into this site and then bin the local files.

The result is the “Screen” feature now on my sidebar

But the amazing thing is, it took just a few drag and drops of the commands, and then just hit “Play” for all these mundane tasks to be performed.


Very impressive, and I have just scratched the surface 🙂
