... Or use an Applescript droplet
Authored by: cnotarianni on Feb 15, '05 09:41:25AM
You ca use an Applescript like this: drag one or more files on top of it and volià!

Copyright © Notarianni Carlo

choose file with prompt "Choose the file to get path"
open (result as list)

on open (thelist)
	open receives a list of documents that were dragged onto the droplet's icon, and passes 
	the document names one at a time to the handle routine. 
	set TempClipboard to ""
	repeat with theNames in thelist
		tell application "Finder"
			set TempPath to theNames as text
			--copy TempPath & "" to TempPath
		end tell
		if TempClipboard is "" then
			set TempClipboard to TempPath
			set TempClipboard to TempClipboard & (ASCII character 13) & TempPath
		end if
	end repeat
	set the clipboard to TempClipboard
end open
