Quick shot Automator

September 23, 2006 by Gabe | [mmd] |

I use a lot of Applescript when I use my Mac. I've learned quite a bit about the language over the years. Needless to say that it makes me a little snobby about using Automator. For the most part, I hate automator because it is so limited. What it has is pretty much all you get to do. However, once in awhile I gain an added appreciation for its simplicity. Here is an Automator "script" that takes a screenshot and then places the screen shot in my blog photos library within iPhoto. I'm sure if I worked long enough I could have come up with an Applescript to do it, but Automator allowed me to do it in about 10 seconds of work. Here it is (and yes, I used this automator "script" to take the screenshot)
