I've been fiddling with the Automator for a good measure of time but can't seem to figure it out all by myself, so here's the thing:

Is it possible to set up Automator so that it would move only .jpg-files from folder X in to folder Y, and leave everything else intact, upon the moment a *.jpg is dropped in to the said folder?

All this is because I have a folder where all my Safari-downloads go and a folder where I keep all my desktop wallpapers. And since everything saved/downloaded thru Safari goes in to the same folder I have to manually move all the images in to my Wallpapers-folder.

Or is there maybe a way to add the good ol' Save as...-option to the context menu so I could select the target folder myself and maybe even rename the file when I save it.

Syntax Error.

Cheers Martin, I'll check that out.

But being the cheap sonuvab.. that I am, I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay for moving some files around my HD, when I can do it for free myself, haha.
