Using Image Processor from Bridge

Jul 30, 2011 1:26 PM

I'm trying to use the image processor from within Bridge. I have done this several times in the past, as recently as last week.

 

I have some files selected in Bridge. I select "Tools>Photoshop>Image Processor" and the dialog box opens. Step 1 indicates that I have files to process (10 in this instance), and I have JPEG selected as the file type to process. When I click "Run", I get an error message that says "Script Alert" in the title. The message in the window says "There were no source files that could be opened by Photoshop".

 

I opened the same 10 files in Photoshop, and I was able to run the Image Processor on them while they were open in Photoshop. I'd rather not do this unless I have to.

 

I haven't added any new programs or plug ins since the last time I used the Image Processor from Bridge.

 

I had the same problem in early June, and the solution suggested then fixed the problem. I'm experienceing the same problem today, and the same solution doesn't seem to be working now.

 

The previous solution was to reset the preferences by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on the Bridge icon to start. A reset window with 3 options popped up. Now, w

 

I would sincerely appreciate any help you could give me with this.

 

Thanks,

Larry

hen I hold the control key down and click on the Bridge icon, I don't get the reset window. I tried it by control-clicking on the Bridge icon from within Photoshop, and I tried it by control-clicking on the Bridge icon from my desktop with Photoshop closed.

    Russell Brown is working on a new version of the Image Processor script: "Image Processor Pro."  I've been using it for almost three months.  You might give it a try:  use it instead of the Image Processor shipped with cs5.  Download from <http://russellbrown.com/scripts.html>  -- scroll down to

    Have there been any solutions to this?

     

    I have used Image Processor for years to batch process (resize) jpgs. And suddenly about three months ago it stopped working.

     

    When I select "Run" I get: "There were no source files that could be opened by Photoshop."

     

    What happened? I have completely trashed all Adobe preferences, restarted PS, disconnected by external harddrive, and a few dozen other things.

     

    Help?

    Would have suggested you reset the preferences in Bridge, but you said you did that with no effect.  Right?

     

    My next question would be is there a permission problem, as it indicates it can not find files.

     

    Are you getting files from external drive or a network?

     

    Do you get same error with trying files from internal drive?

     

    In advanced preferences are your scripts enabled?

     

    Lots of questions to help narrow down the problem, so don't feel picked upon.

    Thanks for your quick response. I have tried deleting ALL my Adobe preferences, just to make sure that I didn't leave one out.

     

    The photo files I am working from are sitting in a folder on my desktop. I am on a network but not working from it. I do have an external harddrive but have completely disconnected it from my iMac.

     

    I've not been able to use the image processor on three months of files ( I do this every month), so its not the same files I tried earlier - its completely new jpgs.

     

    I don't know where/what Advanced Preferences are....?

     

    Thanks!

    Read you original post again and your last post and now I am confused.

     

    You said you reset your Bridge preferences, yet in post #1 you said " I hold the control key down and click on the Bridge icon, I don't get the reset window. I tried it by control-clicking on the Bridge icon from within Photoshop, and I tried it by control-clicking on the Bridge icon from my desktop with Photoshop closed.

     

    So with this said you have not reset the preferences unless you have gone in and deleted the file.  The Bridge Icon is the one one the desktop that you click to start Bridge.

     

    BUT, in last post you say you have a Mac.  So to reset preference believe it is Cmd key.

     

    No matter how you do it you need to get the reset window with the 3 reset options.
