Is there a way to automate opening a PDF in photoshop at 2600dpi and convert to RGB then downsize the file to 360dpi. (I have to open the files at a higher resolution for gradations to look correct when first opened or the gradations don't open correctly). Lastly save the file to a .tif and keep the transparencies. I would like this to be happening from a hot folder on its own, if possible. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am currently doing this by opening manually through Photoshop and using RBA for some of the steps. At the end closing and clicking through the steps to keep transparency. A real pain, but I need the transparencies in the RGB.
The operation itself seems peculiar but a Script could handle it.
What are the gifs ultimately intended for?
As for a hot folder-setup you may want to search over in the Scripting Forum (maybe also try »watched folder«):
