    Automater is pretty much a sequence of commands? Then, they are stored and you can use it anytime?

    Basically, you can also save those commands as an app.

    Basically speaking, Automator is a front-end for AppleScript that does pretty much what you said it does :)

    Try this...

    -Get specified finder items (and make it point to a smart folder matching your image criteria)
    -Change type of images (converts format)
