I'd like to setup a workflow to organize my Mac's Downloads folder. I'm starting with moving all the images to the Pictures folder, but I don't want to move the images that are in subfolders, because I download many things that include images with them, and I don't want those images being separated from the folder they belong in.
For example, if I have downloaded a Wordpress theme, I want those images to stay in their theme folder instead of being moved to "Pictures".
So how do I make finder (within automator) only select the immediate images in the downloads folder and ignore subfolders?
I realize it would be easy for me to sort by "kind" and move them all manually. I'm just fooling around with Automator, and maybe I'll set this as a future automatic, periodic task.
Try this. This seems to be working.
You run the app, and select a folder. The app looks for jpg in that folder only, and ignores any subfolder. Then it moves the jpf files found to the Pictures folder.
