I was (am still) looking for a replacement for my Photoshop CS4 droplet. I don't want to fork out the $ for CS5, particularly with CS6 around the corner and unfortunately CS4 droplets are PPC and no longer work in Lion.

This COULD be a solution for me but some critical things are missing.
-Drag and drop (droplet) functionality
-Sizing for a maximum length AND width (vs picking one or the other which leaves horizontals a different size than verticals.)

Add those two functions and I would gladly PAY!!!

It's hard to give a free app anything less than a five star review but I figured I had to be objective. :)

Anyone with a suggestion for me would be SO appreciated! (reply to review)

Did EXACTLY what I needed:

Enabled the use of a password for waking from sleep ONLY.

I use a MBP from home 70% of the time and the occasions when I really need security are when I'm away. When I am, I am always closing the MBP which puts it to sleep, this will automatically guard me from forgetting to set the "Require password to wake from sleep or screensaver" feature. I leave this setting off because when I work from home I use a screensaver and entering my password 15 times a day would drive me nuts.

BTW- remember to add this program to your account's 'login items'.

Thanks for giving me the simple feature I NEEDED!

Updated to 11.0 when renewing subscription and ALL applications including finder have ground to a near STANDSTILL! I turned off auto protect and anything not related to outgoing email and got the same thing.

Then I ran the UNINSTALL program in the Symantec folder and everything is running faster than it ever has before.

Now I need to find some other APP to protect my hapless PC using clients. Hopefully I can find one that doesn't grind everything to a halt.

Sorry I wasted my money on NAV. again...

Thanks! I'll give that a try. Anything is better than nothing even though my PC friends/colleagues should really all have anti-virus software anyway...

After demo-ing several of these slideshow apps I have definitely found this to be the best one. Great transitions, ton's of options and controls. Smooth and fast!

And it's practically free!!

Transitions limited to full-frame and even then don't work. Otherwise works great, and it's free...

Can't beat the price. Good well written app. Missing basic transition options though. Just a simple 'cross-fade' would be nice.

Download link is now invalid.

This worked fine for me until it reverted to a normal folder. Not sure what happened.

First off I'm using this to solve the simplification of a task that I used to have with my PC (recently moved to mac.)

I used to be able to shove my CF card in the reader (a convenient window would open - wish I could get that back too as I've optioned not to show my drives on my desktop, I've got lots of them and don't want the clutter.) After copying the files I'd delete them from the CF card and yank it out of the reader. Didn't have to empty the trash or eject it, very simple and quick.

So basically I want to combine the delete, empty trash and eject into one button, keystroke or icon.

This may sound quite trivial but if you're doing it constantly it can be quite annoying. I also don't like completely emptying the trash all the time in case I might need to recover something.

This product came close to doing this, it basically did everything it said. Well done! I was even able to drag the application icon to the finder window so it's always handy.

Now if it just did two other simple things it would be perfect. 1. Delete files that are dragged into it from removable drives (not send them to the trash or create a trashes file.) 2. Close it's window once complete. Also if possible create the option to always eject removable drives once cleaned.

That would be perfect.

The developers at "Compost" were kind enough to write me a program to do this.

Here's the script if anyones interested (just below text into script editor and save as an application.) (script is between the lines)
on open inFiles
set theFirstFile to item 1 of inFiles
tell application "Finder" to set theVolume to the disk of theFirstFile
repeat with theFile in inFiles
set thePath to POSIX path of theFile
set theCommand to "rm -r " & quoted form of thePath
set theResult to do shell script theCommand
end repeat
tell application "Finder" to eject theVolume
end open
