    Saving contact Sheets

    OneRocket

      Hi.

      Does anyone know how to save multiple contact sheets to jpg.

      Takes soooo long to do them all individually.....

      Please help me save some time.

      Thanks

          Are the Contact Sheets all that is open?

          In that case you could adapt the following to save jpgs instead of psds.

          (In ESTK’s Help > Object Model Viewer’s Photoshop section you can look up the JPEGSaveOptions.)

          // 2011, use it at your own risk;

          #target photoshop

          if (app.documents.length > 0) {

          // psd options;

                    psdOpts = new PhotoshopSaveOptions();

                    psdOpts.embedColorProfile = true;

                    psdOpts.alphaChannels = true;

                    psdOpts.layers = true;

                    psdOpts.spotColors = true;

          // get documents;

                    var docs = app.documents;

                    for (var m = 0; m < app.documents.length; m++) {

                              app.activeDocument = docs[m];

                              try {

                                        var path = app.activeDocument.path;

                                        app.activeDocument.save();

                                        }

                              catch (e) {

                                        var theName = app.activeDocument.name;

                                        app.activeDocument.saveAs(new File ("~/Desktop/"+theName+".psd"), psdOpts, false)

                                        }

                              }

                    };

            I'd love to know the answer to that too. I use the contact sheet to create a proof book and I need to save the sheets in jpg. It was so nice when the contact sheet was available with an option to automaticaly save to a specific folder. Why did adobe aver removed?!!!

              I have no idea what to do with this code, could you walk me thru on a more basic level. Thanks

                Paste the text into a new file in ExtendScript Toolkit (part of Photoshop’s installation, Applications/Utilities/Adobe Utilities/ExtendScript Toolkit … and save it as a jsx-file into Photoshop’s Presets/Scripts-folder.

                After restarting Photoshop the Script should be available under File > Scripts and can be assigned a Keyboard Shortcut directly, recorded into an Action, be used in a Configurator-Panel or started from ExtendScript Toolkit directly.
