Automator!
Authored by: rspress on Oct 09, '05 10:55:44PM

Automator is my hands down favorite application in Tiger! This program has saved my so much time and saved my from doing the tedious stupid jobs I used to hate. One of the first Automator actions I wrote was to save a graphic file as JPEG. I did this so much before automator I started using ImageMajick in the terminal to save time.

Automator just keeps getting better all time as more applications add support for it. Transmit and StuffIt are two that just added support and now I can right-click to send a file to my website via FTP or encrypt a StuffIt file without having to change the preferences in magic menu and then changing them back after I am done. I would also have to add dashboard to my list as well. It replaces Konfabulator and is much easier to program in. I use it all the time but not for eye candy.
