Sure, you love your Mac, but work is still work: Why spend more time on it than necessary? Wherever possible, why not let AppleScript automate it? It’s easier than you think -- especially if you’ve got AppleScript for Dummies, Second Edition.
Here are all the fundamentals, plus practical intros to scripting Photoshop, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, FileMaker, Safari, .Mac, iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iVD, and iChat. You’ll even learn how to trigger scripts with iCal calendar events: Cool.
This book’s perfect for anyone who’s never written a script or program -- or those who have but are new to AppleScript. Which, by the way, has just been updated with new features and a new Script Editor -- all covered here, too. Bill Camarda
