I'd like to set up a simple keyboard shortcut that would save the currently selected file in the finder as a pdf, assuming it is a filetype that can be converted to pdf. I've already followed this nice shortcut for doing this when the document is open, but now I'm looking to take this one step further and have it work on the file from the finder.
Simple solution with Automator if you are just handling images
You can batch convert these files by:
If you're using other filetypes, you may you the Print finder items action. But it will use a popup if I'm not mistaken.
