    Save files as jpeg and close script

    sarit68219861

      Hi all,

       

      I am very new to scripting (as of this morning) and struggling to get my head round whether the following is possible. Apologies if I am missing something basic.

       

      I would like to be able to have a script which will open a jpeg, insert the file name on to the image, save as a jpeg and close.

       

      I have managed to find examples of this and currently have a script which will open the image, insert the file name and save the file - but as a photoshop document. I am also very keen on the images closing as I need to process at around 200 images at a time and and at the moment can only do a few at a time.

       

      I have inserted what i have so far below...Any help would be appreciated.

      // enable double clicking from the

      // Macintosh Finder or the Windows Explorer

      #target photoshop

       

       

      // Make Photoshop the frontmost application

      // in case we double clicked the file

      app.bringToFront();
