shape5 posted a topic in AppleScript and AutomatorHi all, I was originally trying this with Automator, but if someone can guide me to accomplishing this easier with Applescript then feel free, though i haven't worked with it before. I am trying to get specific actions within a workflow looped. I just need the workflow to process a single image file continuously so the selected edits repeat within the 1 file until i stop the loop. Here are some basic actions i'm trying to get started with: 1 - get specified finder items 2 - copy finder items 3 - scale images 4 - crop images 5 - loop The problem is that i want to loop only actions 3 & 4, but the loop starts over at 1 and creates a new file each time it loops. Can i create 2 workflows where the 2nd one (containing actions 3/4/5) starts when the first (containing 1/2) ends so only the 2nd workflow is looped? I'm not sure how to tell the 2nd one to start when the first ends though. Do i just set the input of the 2nd to use the 1st workflow file? or if it's possible to run this as a service from within Preview that's fine too. Originally i had this setup as WMD (watch me do) actions but Automator won't record the selection tool. if i can get the selection tool recorded then i can keep it as a WMD based workflow. Acorn (for crop/scale i believe) & Extra Suites (Applescript app for recording the mouse click & draw) were apps i saw mentioned on other posts that came up on google searches which might be able to help accomplish this workflow or script. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
