I place a huge number of images supplied from a client to a catalogue, Some of these images supplied, while they show up as 300 pixels/inch, are actualy low res images that have simply been modified to show up as 300 pixels/inch.
When I place these images I place them in small place holder frames and hence it is not very obvious that these are in fact low res images.
Is there any way where I can identify these sort of files via a script?
(CS3--possibly also CS2) Images of any bitmap file format have two resolution properties: effectivePpi -- "The resolution of a graphic after it has been resized" and actualPpi -- "The native resolution of a placed graphic."

If the files have been resampled to 300 dpi, that's the number that'll pop up in the two properties. A script cannot check if a file has been upsampled.
