    Hi there,

    I wondered if there was a way to auto get image files and place them in a folder on my desktop without having to physically tap of drag and drop? So any images that arrive via ftp in the Fetch window will then automatically be placed in a desktop folder.

    Best regards,

    Pete

    Hi,

    I've written an AppleScript to do this, but unfortunately it does not work with Fetch 5.8, because Fetch 5.8 does not have AppleScript support. I would like to remedy that deficiency, but so far have not found the time. So at this time I don't have a solution to offer.

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Hi Jim,

    That is great, I am not using 5.8, still on 5.7. Where can I get hold of the Script?

    Best wishes,

    Pete

    Hi,

    You can download the scripts from https://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/download/FetchExampleScripts.zip . The script you want is called WatchServerFolder. Let me know if you have any questions!
