Move selected files to a predefined folder (Service)

Here’s a OS X system service that will move selected files to a predefined folder. I use it to quickly move multiple photos to my img folder, where they’re prepped and uploaded for use in a blog post by Hazel.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. Download the service below.

  2. Open it in Automator and edit the folder. I have it set to Site/img in my home directory. You’ll want to change that to reference an existing folder where you want the files to end up.

  3. Save the service to your services folder. (~/Library/Services)

  4. Optionally, set a keyboard shortcut in System Preferences> Keyboard> Keyboard Shortcuts> Services.
