    Hi.
    I have a large amount of folders full of wallpapers. About 30 folders with 50 or so wallpapers in each.

    I am wondering if there is a script or automator action that will place the contents of these folder into a single folder.

    Thanks.

    This sounds like a perfect task for Automator. I believe the built-in actions can be put together to create the desired effect. For example:
    1. Ask for Finder Items
    2. Move Finder Items
    3. Repeat
    This works, though it's not 100% automated.

    Open up the main folder that contains the image folders. Do a search for images and make sure that its only searching your main folder name (instead of the whole computer - it does that as default). Now just select all the images and drag them to a new folder of your choosing...
