I am trying to add a custom file action in Alfred so the selected item (say, an image in this case) in Alfred can be acted upon by any system service ("Upload to CloudApp", "Look Up in Dash" etc.).
The only way this can be done at the moment seems to be via creating a custom workflow inside Alfred.
The input for such a workflow would be the selected item. Then I need to add an Action and from the choices available, one is Run Script.
So I am wondering if I can somehow use Keyboard Maestro to create a macro and use it as a script for the above.
Example of what I actually want to do:
- In Finder click on an image file.
- Press a hotkey to send the image to Alfred
- Select CloudApp custom action from the action list
- The image gets uploaded to CloudApp and the URL in clipboard.
