I would like to be able to import fields from Excel into Photoshop CS4 and have the Excel information print directly onto the photo image as a line of text across the bottom and layered over the image itself. This Excel information needs to be able to change sequentialy (eg: ascending numbers, etc) with each new photo. Is there a way to do that with CS4 (or do I need a later version of Photoshop) ?
You would need to export the Excel data as a csv file but I think what you are trying to do can be done with the Data Driven Graphics feature of Photoshop without any scripting. The Photoshop help has details on how to use Data Driven Graphics( or do a Google search ).
Thank you Michael L Hale,
for your suggestion about 'Data Driven Graphics'. I searched that phrase
and found some great information that looks like it will be the way to
go. I have yet to test it, but it looks good.
