Automator Actions Can Be Saved as Contextual Menu Plug-Ins

Derrick Story:

All of those companies should come watch the Automator demo. It’s so easy to use and powerful. I’m going to be eliminating lots of repetitive tasks from my working life. But get this, you can save an Automator script as a Finder “plug-in,” which is Apple’s terminology for a CM (contextual menu) item, accessible via a right-click of the mouse.

What this means is that you’ll be able to write your own CMs with Automator in just a matter of minutes. This is going to be fun…
