Hi all i'm using cs5 to edit 1 picture into 12 variations for a canvas print ad , so i have the original image , which is
(1) reduced in size from approx 30mb @300dpi to approx 7mb @100dpi my action for the 3d canvas requires it to be 40-60 dpi at approx 80"
(2) actioned into a 3d canvas
(3) then reduced back to approx 6" @100dpi
(4) then grouped layers named 1 to 12 are turned on save as then 2 save as then 3 save as etc etc etc etc
i'm up to 107 folders of 12 images as you can imagine its getting borring lol
is there a way via a script (which i've never used) so i can have lets say an image in a folder called "108"
and i can run a script so it does what it does and saves the 12 image variations from that 1 image.
any help will be appreciated i can go through about 10 to 15 a day before i start losing the will to live .
The outer frame is a blank template so i open the original (shutterstock) image then resize it ,run the studio gallery wrap action , this gives a 3d look and rotates the image slightly , then i run an action ( i recorded) to copy that layer , reduce size 10 times (10 layers) to give the 10 colour variations around the outside , this is saved as colourmix.jpg
then where the large image is (layer 1bdg) i have the same colour filters in grouped layers so i end up with 12 pictures as follows
Untouched no filter as original image
i have over a thousand to get through and then i intend to do 7 or 8 frame variations , so this is gonna take a longggg time this is why i thought i come to the experts
JJMACK thanks for the help will take a look at that now.
very best regards ken
