    Copy image from clipboard to (several) x y coordinates using javascript loop

    BillQuick1957

      I have an image (551 px by 709 px) which is on the clipboard.

       

      I would like this image to appear in my active document (3307 px by 4677 px)

       

      The x and y locations where I want the images to appear are:

      • x  = 200      y = 800
      • x = 751       y = 800
      • x = 1340     y = 800
      • x = 1929     y = 800
      • x = 200      y = 1509

       

      Can anyone help in creating a javascript loop?


      • - that uses the x and y values (to be stored in an array) and
      • - pastes/places the image in the active document at the x,y locations and
      • - the coordinates are for the left hand top of the image as beginning point.


      (Everything else concerning this project is already in javascript, but I can't  work this out).

       

      Help will be greatly appreciated.

      The last line of my code that pastes the image (above) on a new layer.


         myselection.paste();

       

      From there on I got stuck.
