Peachpit Press Releases Ben Waldie's Automator for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide

Phoenixville, Pennsylvania - November 9th, 2009 - Automated Workflows, LLC is pleased to announce Peachpit Press' release of Ben Waldie's Automator for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide.

Automator for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide uses a combination of task-based instruction and strong visuals to teach intermediate Macintosh users how to automate repetitive, time-consuming tasks with the Automator application that is included with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Automator comes with many useful automated routines (called actions) preinstalled, for lots of popular applications, that do things like remove empty playlists from iTunes or add attachments to Mac Mail. The real power of Automator lies in mixing and matching these actions to have them do exactly the job you want. They're put together in a string of actions known as a workflow. Author Ben Waldie introduces readers to how Automator works, and then helps them assemble and use Automator workflows.
Both beginning users who want a thorough introduction to Automator and more advanced users looking for a convenient reference will find what they need here in straightforward language, clear steps, and practical tips.
