    Hey all,

    I want to build an automator script that works so when I select multiple items and right click, go more --> automator the action shows up. I have my automator working, but how do I add teh script to that context menu?

    Thanks!

    Ahh... File --> Save as Plugin

    In dropdown, choose Finder

    done and done... that was easier than I had expected....

    Ack it's still not working.... it works in automator but not with the context menu. HALP!

    I did this:

    Automator --> New Custom Workflow
    I added Get Selected Items (Finder) and below that Resize Image.

    If I run this with a selected image nothing happens. If I change from get selected to specify it works. What m I missing? I just want to right click, change to 800x600. So much hate....

    I have mine set to make a copy on the desktop and resize that one.

    I'm wondering how to remove things from the context menu.
