Automator 101 Screencast

— 2 minute read

Here's a quick screencast I did of how Automator works at a basic level.

Nothing too fancy in this video, just renaming 7 files that could probably have been done manually but I thought I'd use the opportunity to show how Automator works and help you see how you might be able to use this app that's built-in to OS X to save some time.

I was writing a blog post on Lemon Productions and wanted to include some screenshots of the WordPress theme I was talking about and... well, I don't want to spoil the ending. Just watch the video. It's pretty intense.1
