Hello everyone,

 

I'm trying to develop an automator script that transform a folder with pictures (jpg, png...) to a unique PDF file.

The idea is simple : I right-click on a folder, then I choose my workflow script, then the system creates a PDF file.

 

I managed to perform the first part of the script : it generates a PDF file called "my_picture.pdf". I use an automator script.

But on the second part, I can not rename this file similar to the "right-clicked" folder name.

 

 

 

This is an example of what I want.

 

Before :

2011_my_house/IMG_1001.jpg

2011_my_house/IMG_1002.jpg

 

I right-click on the folder 2011_my_house and I choose my automator script.

 

After :

2011_my_house/IMG_1001.jpg

2011_my_house/IMG_1002.jpg

2011_my_house.pdf

 

 

My questions :

1) Is it possible to do that with automator ?

2) If not possible, is it possible to call an automator script from the command line ? How does Automator handle the parameters ?

 

 

Thank you in advance,
