@Saeed: Press COMMAND + SPACE to get the Spotlight window and type 'Automator' then press Enter. Alternatively open 'Applications' from a Finder window and double-click the icon in there.

comment Which OS X is the fastest for my old MacBook?
I can concur that later versions of OS X may run slower particularly if you have low amounts of RAM. Mountain Lion was slower than Lion with my 2.33ghz MacBook Pro with 2GB.

comment What is the best way to consolidate two iPhoto libraries into one library?

comment Is there a better photo application than iPhoto for managing iPhone videos and photos?
@at01: the ~/Library folder is hidden in Lion - you need to use Command+Shift+G in Finder to get the 'Go To Folder' popup and type into the box.

I think it's been superseded by ClickToPlugin which is even better IMO
