1. Why does the icon look like a blank, unrecognized file? When I double click on it, it starts DVD Studio Pro. Is this normal? It doesn’t do anything with DSP, it just starts it.

  2. You don’t double click the’s an Automator action. Copy it into ~/Library/Automator and access it from the Automator Library.

  3. How do you define the input folder?

  4. Nevermind – I figured it out…

    For all the other newbies with similar issues – select the images you want to convert, right click and select automater…then select your “camera raw” selection from the library…

  5. You can drag the files to the Automator window, where they will appear as a single “Get Finder Items” could also save the workflow as an application or finder plug-in, allowing you to select and convert the files on the fly.

  6. There is now an update to version 1.0. Rotate now works and a bug with home directories has been fixed.

  7. Fast Half size mode does exactly what it says… cuts the image in half, not the resolution but the actual image. 4″x 6″ becomes a 2″x 6″

  8. Version 1.1 is out, it fixes a little annoyance with having to tab off the text fields before the value is saved.

  9. I find it strange that the very thing that makes RAW so superior is being bypassed by this action. The whole point of RAW is to give you control over how the files are converted from RAW to TIF or PSD or whatever. And this action takes you right past that control part and creates files that are no longer capable of giving you that control.

    What am I missing here?

  10. One might argue that a raw file converted without intervention is still better than a JPG. In any case, it’s just an action that performs a function. Some might find it useful, some not. C’est la vie.
