These Automator actions are designed to take some of the tedium out of your work. Many of them were created specifically for web designers and developers. However, if you’re not either of those, you may still find them useful.

For information about each action, see below. If you’re new to Automator, you can learn about it here. If you’d like to modify or improve on these actions, the source code is available on GitHub.

Junecloud Automator Actions includes: Save for Web, Make Names Web-Friendly, Create Clean Archive, Create Symbolic Link, and Hide or Show Extensions. Change Extensions and Find Finder Items by Label are no longer included.

Save for Web

This Automator action (formerly named Save as JPEG) will export images in JPEG, GIF, or PNG format using Adobe Photoshop CS (for higher quality images) or Preview (for faster conversion without opening an application). Additional options allow you to constrain the image to a maximum width and height, and sharpen the image after resizing. Works great as a Finder plugin, so you can access it with a single click!

New in version 3.0.1:

  • Now compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).
  • Now compatible with Photoshop CC.

Make Names Web-Friendly

This Automator action converts the names of the selected files to all lowercase, removes accents, changes spaces to underscores or dashes, and converts other special characters to underscores or dashes. Works great as a Finder plugin, so you can access it with a single click!

New in version 3.0.1:

  • Now compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).

Create Clean Archive

This Automator action creates a clean zip format archive (.zip) that’s ready to share with others. Macintosh resource forks and desktop files will be ignored so they don’t get in the way on other operating systems. If you’re uploading the file online, use the action “Make Names Web-Friendly” afterward to ensure the archive has a web-friendly file name. Works great as a Finder plugin, so you can access it with a single click!

New in version 2.0.1:

  • Now compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).

This Automator action creates a symbolic link for each of the selected files. A symbolic link is similar to an alias, except that many applications, including the Create Clean Archive action, will see only the file points to rather than the alias itself.

New in version 2.0.1:

  • Now compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).

Hide or Show Extensions

This action hides the file extension of the selected files.

New in version 2.0.1:

  • Now compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).

Change Extensions

This action is no longer available. In OS X 10.7 or later, you can use the built-in “Rename Finder Items” action to change extensions. Just choose “Replace Text” and then set it to find in “extension only”.

Find Finder Items by Label

This action is no longer available. In Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6 or later), you can use the built-in “Find Finder Items” action to search by color label.
