    Hey i have a script that changes the permissions for files automatically. Is there a way to make this script run every time a file is added to a certain folder on my computer??

    Do you know how I make my script show in the selectable scripts in the folder actions program?

    If I remember correctly, you need to place it in the Scripts folder for your account. Not at my Mac, but I believe it's ~/Library/Scripts/Folder Actions Scripts.
