Repetitive saving over and over , help on actions / scripts

Apr 5, 2012 5:36 PM

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 .

 

 

regards ken

    I bet you wanted more then a Yes.  The good new is you don't even have to write the script its been writen for you.  Go to Russell Brown Web site and download X's script Image Processor Pro.  Once installed you will find it under menu File>Automate>Image Processor Pro.  You can configure it to save as many image files for an imags as you need. The script is very flexable you can include an action for each image you need to save.  The script has plug-in support so you can even recorde its use in an action.  Actions are easier then scripts to make you can recoed and edit these. For Scripts need to program with a programming scripting language on a PC the choices are Javascript and VBS, on a Mac Javascript and Apple Script.    Javascript as you see works on both platforms.

    I don’t quite follow the description – could you please post an example of a source image and the intended result?
