It’s been quite a while since we’ve had any fun with AppleScript so today we’re going to build a super basic script that automatically reads a list of URLs and turns them into screenshots.

If you’re new to AppleScript, be sure to read our introduction and advanced articles! We’ll be explaining things as we go but everything will make a lot more sense once you do your homework.

Apptivate is an incredibly useful little app that lives in your menubar and allows you to set keyboard shortcuts to launch applications and scripts.

Today we’ll look at where to get Apptivate and how to set it up. As a bonus, I’ll show you how to create your very own window management application similar to SizeUp using a combination of AppleScript and Apptivate.
