    Hi!

    I discovered something today that really blew my mind so I decided to share it with you:

    One of the things I really like about Windows is the fact that you are able to shift-rightclick a file and hit "copy to path".

    You could also interpret that first sentence this way: I really dislike mac for not letting me do that.

    Until today. Since I was getting tired of hitting cmd-i, and than copying the path (without the filename itself) I decided to do some Google searches.

    It turned out that this functionality can be added very easily with a very simple automatorservice. It will take about a minute of your time and it will save you a lot of frustration in the future:)

    So here's a link to a small tutorial:
