Trying to learn Automator to do a few simple things but can't locate any Apple Manuals. Don't feel like buying a $30 book unless necessary - where's the docs?
Try these. The first is not hosted by Apple. The second is on the Apple Developer Site. You do not need to be a paid developer to access these. Use your Apple ID and password, or ... not.
Apple's totally remiss in providing details. These are dated, but should get you started:
Introduction to Automator tutorial at http://automator.us/leopard/video/index.html
http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2241804 for links to a four-parter by Sal Saghoian on Automation in Snow Leopard but should apply to the new iOSified OSs.
