Automator

Version: 2.0 || Release Date: 2007-11-14 || License: Included with OS App Owner: rafaelgaspar

You can easily automate tasks such as renaming a large group of files, resizing dozens of images to fit an iPhoto slideshow or creating iCal birthday events using Address Book contacts, then repeat those tasks again and again. Simple and easy-to-understand application Actions are the building blocks, so you don't have to write any code. Each Action has all of the options and settings you need. You don't have to work hard to figure out how to make it work.

Some of the features of Automator are good, but I find it doesn't have a lot of actions that I would like. Do I have to learn Applescript?

Whilst it is taking me some time to get used to the terms used in Automator, I am finding that it really does speed-up my working through routine jobs throughout the working day.
I strongly recommend that you check out many of the on-line ScreenCasts that offer guidance to get you through your first few creations (see ScreenCastsOnline.com - its one of the best).
