So after over a year, I finally found a use for Automator. Here at college I don't have a printer. I have to attach whatever files I want to print to an email, send them to a webmail address, go to a lab and print from there. Yeah it's a pain, but I made an Automator workflow that does all the stuff on this end in one step, since I have it as a Finder workflow and can ctrl+click to get to it. I simply select my file(s), click on the command and the work flow ... 1. Gets the selected Finder items. 2. Makes an archive out of them on the desktop. 3. Attaches the archive to an email automatically addressed to my webmail account. 4. Sends the email. 5. Gets the archive from the desktop. 6. Moves it to the trash. As you can probably tell I'm relatively proud of myself, and glad that I was finally able to get some real practical use out of Automator. Yay.
