I’ve just started with Keyboard Maestro a week ago but I absolutely love it. Tons of things to learn. I am currently hitting a wall creating a macro that multiple variables need to be passed.
The content of the macro
I want to use ImageMagick command tool to create a collage from selected images.
The command used here is
montage image1.jpg image2.jpg -geometry 800X800+25+25 -density 300 -quality 100 converted-image.jpg
Ideally I want to be able to handle not only two images, but any amount of images selected, to pick every image’s path and put them between “montage” and “-geometry”
What I currently have
I searched both wiki and google, but could not find the method to pass multiple variables.
When I tried to run shell script with plain text, it seems like KM was not picking up the path. So I thought of store every path into the clipboard and paste them in the reverse order in order to pass the variables. I currently set the macro to paste last two paths, but have no idea how this would work for any amount of images.
I must’ve done something wrong as the script would not work. The macro always got canceled.
To test if the variables are correct, I added a text box to display them.
I paste the text into iTerm and it worked.
I realize I probably cannot use user input as the final file name, but it did not make any difference when I used a pre-defined name.
I appreciate any feedback or help
