Junecloud Automator Actions Help

If you’re new to Automator, you may want to focus on the basics before trying our actions. Open Automator and choose “Automator Help” from the Help menu to learn how to get started. You can also learn about Automator here.

Installation

Just open the Actions folder and double-click an action to install it. OS X 10.7 or later is required. (See below for older versions.)

You can use these actions in any type of workflow, but they’re particularly useful as Services. Open the Services folder and double-click a service to open it. Click “Install” to use it as is, or choose “Open with Automator” to customize the workflow. Once the service is installed, you can right-click (or control-click) a file in the Finder, then choose the service at the bottom of the menu to use it. You can also select multiple files to affect them all at once.

Older versions of OS X

OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

Download Junecloud Automator Actions 2.5.1. To install an action, just double-click it. Double-click a service to open it in Automator. If you like, you can customize the settings or add other actions to the workflow. When you’re done, choose “Save As…” from the File menu. You can now right-click (or control-click) a file in the Finder, then choose the service at the bottom of the menu to use it.

OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Download Junecloud Automator Actions 2.5.1. In some versions of Leopard, double-clicking may not install the actions. It’s easy to install them manually though: just open your home folder in the Finder, then open the Library folder there. If you see an Automator folder, open it. If not, create it yourself. Drag the actions you want to install into this folder.

In Leopard, Finder Plug-Ins were used instead of Services. To create a Finder Plug-In, open Automator and create a new workflow. Add the actions you want to include. Choose “Save As Plug-In…” from the File menu. Enter a name, make sure Finder is selected in the pop-up menu, and click Save. You can now right-click (or control-click) a file in the Finder and choose More » Automator » Name to run the action on that file.

OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

Download Junecloud Automator Actions 2.5.1. Tiger is not officially supported, but you can use these actions if you install them manually. Open your home folder in the Finder, then open the Library folder there. If you see an Automator folder, open it. If not, create it yourself. Drag the actions you want to install into this folder.

You may find some quirks in Tiger. Currently the only known bug is that the “convert umlauts to ‘e’” option in Make Names Web-Friendly does not work in Tiger.
