I want to create a script in automator to allow me to distribute my photos by ftp and email automatically in a folder action.


I have currently go it linked to a folder on the desktop called test (until I have it perfected.)


I have managed to make it distribute to specified ftp servers using multiple instances of (1 for each server)


I have also managed to get it to email all photos to a specified email address with the subject being the name of the first picture


This has been achieved by using the following apple script and setting the response to a variable:


on run {input, parameters}


          tell application "System Events"

                    return name of first item of input

          end tell


end run


What I need, is for this to happen but sending each photo in a separate email with their file name in the subject line.


How would I go about doing this??
