Creating a simple Automator workflow

Just to get you going, here’s a movie we created to show how to set up a simple Automator action using some of the Illustrator actions provided by Ai Actions.

We create a workflow to do all of the following in one go:

  • Open an Adobe Illustrator artwork
  • Outline all the text (convert to paths)
  • Embed any linked images
  • Close the artwork
  • Make a new email with the resulting file

    Once created, you can use the workflow over and over again. You can concentrate on the creative stuff instead of the mundane donkey-work.
