MacVoices #868: Ben Waldie Discusses Getting Started with Automator with Leopard

Ben Waldie
Ben Waldie, the author of Automator for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide from Peachpit, discusses getting what’s new in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard from an Automator perspective, and provides some tips on getting started with creating your own workflows. Ben covers some of the changes that make Automator more approachable than ever, and discusses the fact that many users are intimidated by the concept of creating workflows, and why they shouldn’t be. A common mis-conception is that AppleScript and Automator are the same thing; Ben dispels that myth, and answers the question, “Why would I want to automate anything?”
