Automator delivers customizable automation to customers without the necessity of writing any scripts, routines, or computer code. Similar in concept to kitchen recipies, Automator enables users to create an “automation recipe” by following a simple drag-and-drop process, relating the individual steps of a workflow to pre-crafted automation nuggets that are listed in the order in which the steps of the task are to be performed. If you can describe how to make a sandwich, you can use Automator!

Automator is simple.

Anyone can use Automator. Creating automated workflows is a simple drag-and-drop process of visually selecting and connecting the individual actions you want the computer to do for you-there's absolutely no code to write. Click the Run button and Automator goes to work. And you can be a hero to your friends by sharing your favorite Automator workflows with them!

With Automator you can automate just about everything you do with your computer. Create and print a family directory with the contacts in your Address Book. Find and add images from your favorite websites to iPhoto. Print your Keynote business presentations to your iPod Photo. Perform scheduled backups of important files. There's no limit to what you can do. Add more actions and you can do even more.

Automator is powerful.

Automator can do in seconds and minutes what would take you hours to do by hand. Automator gives you direct access and control of the powerful Mac OS X frameworks like Core Image, Core Data, Core Audio and Core Video, to process hundreds of images, or folders and folders of files.

In addition, Automator moves information seamlessly between the Mac OS X applications you use every day to organize your life, like Finder, Mail, Address Book, and iCal. Even the iLife applications iPhoto, iTunes, and iDVD, can be included in your workflows. When you have to tackle complex or repetitive tasks, Automator is the right tool for the job.
