The "Welcome to the Party" Workflow

Come on in — it's a party! And what better way to spread party cheer than using your Mac to snap some candid shots, instantly add them to the current screen-saver, all while simultaneously displaying them on your widescreen TV!

Best of all, it's done for you automatically using Automator.

Take and add snapshots to your computer's screen saver.

Spend a couple minutes constructing this simple Automator workflow and you'll have hours of fun watching your guests mug for the camera.

The workflow requires:

  1. Mac OS X v10.5
  2. An active iSight camera
  3. (Optional) An Apple TV installed with a widescreen TV

Apple TV syncs with your computer to display the party photos on your HDTV for everyone to see.
