Automator actions I like the look of

by Giles Turnbull

In no particular order:




  • Doug's iTunes actions adds several useful new options for mucking about with music files.

  • Video recorder lets you save live video images from an attached camera directly to your hard disk.

  • iView Media Pro actions will come in handy for users of that excellent media cataloguing application.

  • Cut and Paste -- OK, not actions as such, but very simple workflows for working with clipboard data.

  • Create thumbnail poster grabs a bunch of images, thumbnailizes them, and creates a ready-to-print poster. Nifty!

  • View items in Terminal takes the input (or, put another way, the output of a previous action), opens Terminal, runs vim, and displays it there.

  • Upload to Flickr; well, you can guess what it does.




Got any more?
