i've used automator before to do some simple things like batch file renaming, but admittedly with some difficulty and need some help now that i want to try something a little more complex. WHAT: i want to make a script that will select each file in a certain folder and copy the icon from the "get info" pane and paste it back WHY: now i know this sounds redundant but the reason is because i have a media folder where ive stored ripped movies and music and for each one i had googled the image to album or dvd covers and pasted them in. At some point after my conversion to leopard 10.5.x, i discovered these icons will NOT show in coverflow. only the ones i pasted in while operating on tiger 10.4.x. what i noticed however, is that with the release of snow leopard 10.6 which operates on my intel macbook, any icons pasted in using the 10.6 os will showup in coverflow now on leopard 10.5. my media hard drive stays attached to the ppc desktop so upgrading to snow leopard 10.6 is impossible and this is the desktop that is hooked up to the big monitors and tv so i woud really like to browse the media folder with coverflow. ANY help or guidance would be much appreciated since i still stubmble through automator each and every time i try to create a script.
