10.7: Auto-copy Photo Stream images to a folder
Authored by: bigj on Feb 13, '12 02:47:46PM

My Folder Action Automator script which is attached to the directory ~/Library/Applications Support/iLifeAssetManagemenrt/assets/sub has three components:
1) Get Folder Contents (the "Repeat....? box is not ticked)
2) Import Files into iPhoto. I set an existing album which I call PhotoStream. (I created this in iPhoto first.)
3) Copy Finder Items. This step is not needed but I use it to check the script has run OK.

I agree that when each picture is added it is in a subdirectory with a 42 hex digit name. I guess this might be a encoded date but I don't know. My script picks up the .jpg file correctly although it only picks up the first file added in any batch. I haven't fixed this yet.
