    adjustment layer: solid fill

    Koen Van Riel

      Hi I'm looking for a way to create an adjustment layer kind :"solid fill"  with applescipt.

      It should have a fill with an Lab color (eg; L= 20, a=10, b=13)




         tell application "Adobe Photoshop CS3"

             tell current document

                set newLayer to make art layer with properties {name:"MyInkName", kind:solid fill layer, color:{class:Lab color, value_L:20, value_a:10, value_b:13}}

               end tell

        end tell





      You can only change the layer's kind to text or normal.

          You may have to use the JavaScript code created with ScriptingListener.plugin.


          Why do you use AppleScript?

            I don't know java script.

            Also I get the lab values from an excel sheet with applescript.

            I found this java code but it needs the be changed:

            1) I want lab values and the this code generates an RGB color

            2) I need to input the lab values from applescript


            How can I do this?
