    I want iPhoto to automatically import pictures, that I put in a certain folder.

    I transfer photos wirelessly from my camera to /pictures, and I wish they would instantly appear in iPhoto when I do so.

    I´ve read through similiar threads here, but I did not make a successfull autoscript. It worked when I ran the automation in automator, but not outside. I want this to happen everytime new pictures are added to the folder. Without me doing anything else.

    I tried the following:
    1. Find finder objects
    2. Import to iPhoto and delete source files.

    And then I tried saving these as a few different scripts. None worked on their own. And Im also unsure as to create the script as a folder action, workflow or picture transfer addon.
