Automation Plugin Development

Feb 23, 2013 2:47 PM

Is there any other documentation on automation plugin development other than the 13 year old PDF file included with the SDK?  I can find little help on the subject aside from this.  Is there some sort of third-party development group that offers additional documentation?  Thanks!

    The SDK documents are updated each release cycle.

    Are you reading the Photoshop CS6 SDK, or some much older SDK version?


    No third party groups that I know of.   The SDK and the example source are the normal documentation.

    the best way to learn is to look into sample code + use Listener and Getter

    Some of the old documents are really god for start

    (naturally path of files or file names mentioned are not ok but if you use text search trough files in sdk you will be fine)


    Scripting primer.pdf - how to make plugin "actionable"

    Automation Tutorial.pdf - name says it

    Photoshop Actions Guide.pdf - also good for start learning (understanding) but to write code in later SDK se HTML documentation

    Photoshop API Guide.pdf - is also good for understanding process of making plugin but to make code look into HTML docs

    PICA.PDF - About suites , what are they acquiring releasing etc (similar to COM interfaces or DirectX ...)



    Adobe really should update those but or just make clear that they are just for learning not coding.
