mail.app photos import to iphoto

I have been trying to do my second automator script without luck.

Basically I need a script to import photos from selected message(s) in mail.app into iPhoto.  That's it smile

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you

The current version of Mail does not expose message attachments in the scripting dictionary, therefore there's no way to "see" and retrieve the attached image. Sorry :-(

Re: mail.app photos import to iphoto

I was looking for that same action.  Here is what I did:

1.  Created a folder in my Pictures folder called "Mail2iPhoto"
Whenever I get an email w/ Pics attached, I just click the save button next to the attachment and it saves to that folder automatically after setting it the first time.

2.  Create workflow:
Get Specified Finder Items > Specify Mail2iPhoto folder
Get Folder Contents
Import Photos into iPhoto > Click checkbox for "Delete the Source Images After Importing Them"

Its an extra mouse click or 2 but it works for me...

Boy do I feel stupid,
The save button in Mail 2.0 has an Add to iPhoto option...I just never bothered to hold it down.
