I am totally new to Automator, in fact, I didn't even know I had it in OS 10.4


Since I'm clearing out some of our 'to dispose of' items around the house, and am posting items to sell on our local, and running the same ads week after week...about 5 or 6 of them, as it's time consuming to post the ads each week, I wonder if I could use Automator to:


  1. Go to (my locality)
  2. Open 'Item to Sell'
  3. Select type of item
  4. Select Item Category
  5. Select type of seller ((owner/dealer)
  6. Select Neighborhood
  7. Copy Ad text (from selected file in my computer) into required field
  8. Copy (selected file) Photo for Ad
  9. Click Continue
  10. Click Agree on TOS


...stuff like that...or is that too much for Automator at this point in time?





PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G5 1.8 GHz
