i’m a newb trying to understand applescript and automator. i am working on the following workflow with automator (i’ll try to keep this as simple and explanatory as i can):
- the computer does a get text and requests your name:
- the computer copies this info onto the clipboard.
- isight will automatically take a picture the name of the file: video snapshot.tiff
- (part i’m stuck on)
i’m trying to get automator to rename the file with the “name” that is present in clipboard.
- the photo gets dropped into a folder with the name and photo of the person who did it.
i think it would be fun for parties to see everybody’s picture and inputted data… especially in a random screensaver with cool music.
i appreciate any input that you have, and humbly accept your help
