Exactly three days and fifteen years ago, Apple purchased a little software company called NeXT. Later, they would integrate NeXTSTEP into their own operating system, and a few more years later, that operating system would be called OS X — and still contain fragments from an operating system that was the very first stepping stone towards the operating system we all know and love today.
OS X Daily take you through the process to do a batch resize of photos with Automator, where you can scale images using a simple Automator workflow. I've been using a similar method (without all the fanciness of the Automator stand-alone app), and it works exactly as described.
Steve Jobs once said "people who know what they're talking about don't need PowerPoint", and even went as far as implying that any form of projected media on a screen isn't appropriate for any kind of presentation.
Just a short note about NZMac.com and news posts over the Christmas and New Year's holiday period: there won't be any news posts until early January. From yours truly and on behalf of the team at NZ Tech Media, have an excellent holiday period, and we'll hope to see you sometime in the New Year.
