I’m sorry, Automater, AppleScript is not quite up to the ease of use to be used by normal folks yet.
We don’t need a programmng language, we need a list of options, put them in a row and Automator will go about using the programs to do the job.
Heck Quickeys does a better job automating.
We need something that can record our actions and then communicate back to us to clarify exactly what we want done. Step by step.
It also should be intelligent and flexible so we can say drop any image format and size into a special folder and it will take it and make it a 400 x 600 jpeg with quality under 20 mb file size.
Relying upon developers isn’t the way to go with automation. Mac OS X should simply move the mouse and perform the actions instead of the user if the user chooses too.
Forget what apps can be scriptable/automatored or not, they all should be.
