Services Menu Options Hey you wanna-be Mac Power users, this article is a follow-up to Your Quick Guide To The Services Menu On Snow Leopard published on Monday. While Apple has improved its Services Menu in Snow Leopard, it’s not very useful unless you have items in it that you can use. Some 3rd party applications will automatically include Services items, but the best use of Services is to custom build your own items, which can be done with Automator, a program installed with OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard. MUO published an article last year, How To Use Automator To Batch Rename Images on Mac about how to use a previous version of Automator. This how-to will show you how to use the newest version, incorporating the Services template to help you get started. The focus on this automation tutorial will show you how to create a Services menu item for the Mac that resizes a selected image on your Mac and attaches it to an email.

OS X Process Management: Guide to Activity Monitor Written by Topher Kessler With UNIX having many tasks running simultaneously, through the years developers have incorporated several command-line tools that allow for live process management. These include "top", "kill", "ps", "df", and "vm_stats", and are available in the BSD subsystem in OS X via the command line. Since these tools require knowledge of the Terminal (which I admit is one of the funnest aspect of OS X), Apple has compiled the function of these and similar tools into "Activity Monitor" to make process management more user-friendly. When you launch Activity Monitor (available by default in the "Utilities" folder), you can view the main window by pressing "command-1" or by selecting "Activity Monitor" from the "Window" menu.

Top 25 OS X Terminal commands Terminal (in Applications/ Utilities) gives you direct access to the UNIX system that underpins OS X. By typing specific commands into your Terminal window, you can make changes, open settings or access features that aren't available by any other means. After typing one of the commands offered in this tutorial, press Return to activate it, and anything offered in quotes is typed without the quote marks themselves. Commands split over two or more lines here should be typed in their entirety – you don't press Return halfway through. And bear in mind that some commands are case-sensitive, so be true to what's here. One final word of warning: all the tips in this article have been thoroughly tested, but experimenting with the Terminal is not a task to be undertaken lightly.
