    Automator. How to use it?
    I think I have a general idea of what Automator does, I would just like to know exactly how to use it, because it looks like it would be a useful application. Help?

    Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!

    I know this is going to sound like I am tooting my own horn but you might find the following ATPM articles useful. They illustrate some basic concepts and what I have been able to do with it. The Automator interface has changed a bit over the time these articles were written but I think you will get the idea.

    ATPM 12.07 - How To: Maybe You Ought To Be Using Automator
    ATPM 12.08 - How To: Sending Automated Birthday Greetings Via Automator
    ATPM 15.11 - How To: Making Your Own Speakable Items
    ATPM 16.01 - How To: Building Your Own Additions to the Services Menu

    You might also find Ben Waldie's Mac Automation Made Simple podcast useful.
