    cs6 - modifying "Image catalog" script to directly export into pdf, label width, file name sorting???

    kajzica

      hello

      I frequently use this script in cs6 but have problem.

      1. Is it possible forcing script to directly export catalog to pdf into same folder where source images is???? I need to specify pdf export preset in script, dont want dialog boxes. pdf name can be as images source folder name.

      2. Label width with file name bellow picture need to be size of column, not picture width.

      3. file sorting need to be by file name in folder, not by extension.

       

      thanks
