About 2 months ago, I made a Shortcut to write movie reviews (see the related link at the end of this post, but it’s in Chinese). With the Shortcut, a nice looking movie review can be generated in Day One on iOS.
But in the past two months, I worked with my Mac more often, so I wondered if there was a way to make a counterpart for macOS. Fortunately, the newest version (9.0) of Keyboard Maestro has a good support for JSON. Thanks to this new feature, at the end of the day, I was able to implement the same function with a KM macro.
This macro is designed for Day One (4.0). The download link is below. But before run the macro, please configure it with the instruction in the next section.

Install Keyboard Maestro 9.0 first.

~/Pictures/. You can change the path in the last two actions, which is labeled in green. If you decide to change, you have to change them both.
In the final action, you can also change the layout, specify a journal, and add tags for the entry.
If everything works fine, your movie review will be like this:
If you have any idea to improve this macro, welcome to share.
