Movie: Using Pass Saved File for Multi-App Workflows

Filed under: Automator Actions 

One of the great advantages of using an Automator workflow over Photoshop’s built-in actions is that an Automator workflow can drive multiple applications. To facilitate this, you might need to make use of the Pass Saved File checkbox in the Render action.

In this movie, you’ll see how to easily create a workflow that opens images in Photoshop, applies some processing, then saves out new files which get uploaded to an FTP server using Panic Software’s Transmit application. The process used is one that will be handy any time you want to build complex workflows that span multiple applications.
