The glue I’ve been looking for

Seldom do I feel like a genius. But my discovery of sips, Platypus and CocoaDialog has brought me close to the perception of IQ>150.

Simple problem, difficult solution. Ever had that observation in response to technical conundrums? In my case, automating the webpage workflow to save both low– and high-resolution versions of all posted photos—simple problem, difficult solution.

Until now. Using only basic shell-scripting skills, I arrived at an quick, elegant answer to a problem I never thought I would be able to solve. Store and pass an array of paths or drag-and-drop to rename and rescale? No contest.

This is why I bought a Mac.
