    Save RAW as JPG in original folder script

    andreass72077011

      Hi,

       

      1.

      I'm looking for advice to script the following process.

       

      - Make changes to a series of RAW-images (multiple files located in multiple folders)

      - Save each series of RAW-files as JPG in subfolders within the original folders. (plan B - it's ok just to save in the original folders)

      - Close Photoshop

       

      2.

      Is there a way to apply a script when images are added to a directory or something like that, so that I can trigger the script in some way?

       

      Best, and thank you in advance,

       

      /Andreas :-)

          If the Raw File  folders are in a File system tree branch. that is there is a root folder where all the other folders containing the raw files are subfolders of a branch.  X wrote that script for you. Search for Image Processor Pro download and install it.  Photoshop menu File>Automate>Image Processor Pro...   Its a Plug-in script so its where other plug-in are in File>Automate.

            Thank you very much! :-)

             

            I've installed the Image Processor Pro, and got it to work it seems. testing it now.

             

            Last thing is to make it more automatic, so that it can be used via a droplet, or through an event like when images are moved to the folder or something. Any knowledge on that part?

            I'm willing to pay for development hours of the script if you, or someone you know can develop it.

              If you open a two document. with the documents open you can record an action that you use the Image Processor Pro plug-in in. While recording the Action you can set the image processor pro dialog to process the current document or all open documents. The setting you set will be recorded into the action step by the plug-in.  When the Action is used the plug-in will bypass displaying its dialog and use the settings recorded into the action step. The step is also a bit strange when you look at it in the action in the actions palette it will look empty.

               

              One the Action is recorded you can creat your droplett.   I do not know how droplets work. I would guess one document at a time. So I would first try recording the Action step to process the current document.

                I do not know how droplets work.

                 

                It processes a file at a time, but you can drop multiple files or a folder on to it to process a pack of files. PS does not do hot folders. People have implemented hot folder solutions (including me) that you may find by searching around.

                  In many ways, this is similar to a different forum topic that I answered this morning…

                   

                  Setup an Adobe Camera Raw preset using appropriate settings for auto processing a batch of images.

                   

                  Go into Bridge and use the Edit > Find command similar to the image below:

                   

                  find.png

                   

                  Search at the parent top level folder and include all sub-folders, which will effectively strip away the folders and only show the contents of the folders. You can of course chain together multiple criteria – or work in smaller groups of folders or images.

                   

                  Select all of the images in Bridge that are returned by the Find command or smart collection.

                   

                  Then use Bridge’s Edit > Develop Settings command to apply your previously create batch preset to all selected files.

                   

                  No images need to be opened into Adobe Camera Raw or even Photoshop, the metadata is applied directly to the ACR database or XMP sidecar files. As all you are doing is adding metadata to the selected files, this will only take a fraction of a second per file.

                   

                  You can then run Image Processor Pro from Bridge to create the subfolders and rendered files as required.
