Here is my process:

1. Create Folder Action

2. Set "Folder Action receives files and folders added to" "new photos" folder

3. Add Launch Application Mail

4. Add New Mail Message and fill in To:, Subject:, and Message:.

5. Add Filter Finder Items and set to Date created is today

6. Add Add Attachment to Front Message

I have it set to email a specific email address but instead it is sending it right back to my main email address.

I have checked to make sure I have step 4 entered correctly.

I just want a folder action to recognize a new photo has been added and email the photo as an attachment to a specified email address. It doesn't seem that complicated.

Any idea what could be going wrong?

Hello and welcome.

Sorry no one has responded to you as of now.

Most of us here aren't well-versed in Automator and AppleScript, although a few members do know a little about it. Hopefully they will chime in with any help they have to give.
