10.4: Use Automator to open chosen folder in Terminal

Not many people realize this, but for a Finder plugin you don't need the initial "Get Selected Finder Items" action; the plug-in itself performs this. This workflow works fine with the applescript step alone.

10.4: Use Automator to open chosen folder in Terminal

Another trick that people dont seem to know about is that they can drag any finder item into a terminal window, and the path with be pasted in. Very handy!

Ok, ok.

But what if you haven't open Terminal, nor wants to position at the start of the dropped line to write "cd "

I do this kind of command (cd'ing to a finder path) and I can assure you this is the most natural and quick way!
