10.4: System-wide iPhoto browser
Authored by: sjonke on May 01, '06 10:36:27AM
Here is a hack way to get the action to paste the photo to the current application. First, I'd suggest unchecking the option to allow multiple selection, as this hack will only work with one photo, not multiple. Next, after the choose photos action add a Preview "Open images in Preview" action, then after that add a "Run applescript" action (in Automator library of actions) with this script:
on run {input, parameters}
	tell application "System Events"
		delay 2
		keystroke "c" using command down
		keystroke "w" using command down
		keystroke tab using command down
		delay 2
		keystroke "v" using command down
	end tell
	return input
end run
This is a hack. Expect it to fail on occasion, or even often! :) It definitely could stand for some substantial improvements.
