Snag Multiple Images from a Web Site


Snag images from a web siteThis screencast features Automator, but it’s more about how to achieve the goal than about using Automator.

Murphy will show you the basics of creating a Workflow, but the ins and outs of saving your Automator work as an application will have to wait. We’ll get to it soon.

This technique can be really useful when you want to grab some photos from an online gallery. Unfortunately, it won’t work with photo galleries created with more sophisticated tools. Many galleries rely on scripts and applets that this Workflow won’t handle.

  1. Sorry this was late posting, Murphy pushed the wrong button!

  2. I like your idea for zipping and senidng the newest website files.I think some combination of Automator and AppleScript is a pretty neat balance. Since my only experience with Unix is through Mac OS X, I know next to nothing about shell scripting. I did my share of batch files in the Windows world. Are they similar? Which is harder to learn AppleScript or bash?I’ve come to really appreciate the Mac platform. The more I use it, the more I like it. Don’t get me wrong Windows does what it’s supposed to do. I think the biggest thing I like about the Mac OS itself is not having to tinker with everything to get it to work right, which is something that is just part of the Windows world. Time Machine is handy, and I’m not above admitting I like the eye candy of OS X.
