In CS 5 you have multiple artboards place an image on each artboard or make an artboard for each image.
The save as a pdf and you get a multiple page pdf, in fat if you only want a range you can select to this as well or a non continuos range of images (artboards)
You choose this option in the save dialog.
For exporting to jpegs there is the same option for them as well. You end up with multiple jpegs from one click.
to confirm, in CS5 I can import a selection of images to be placed on multiple artboards in one command file/place...?
Or do I need to first create all those artboards? Then still import each image individually file/place 10 times...
Thats the thing, I just want to import 10 photographs to be placed as childs of a parent layer but do it all in one go, I`m just using my storyboard sketches as reference for background templates for 1 single artboard, didn`t necessarily or don`t need to create multiple artboards,

Anyone got a script to import multiple placed images into CS4? or is this possible in CS5?
I only have CS3 installed on this laptop. But even in CS3 you can:
1. Open a new document.
2. Record an Action which:
2.1. Open (don't Place, Open) the first image in a folder of images.
2.2. Select all.
2.4 Close. (Don't Save)
3. Run the Action in Batch mode on the folder of images.
4. Select all. Release to Layers (Sequence).
You'll have to tap the Don't Save button each time the Action closes a file, but that's no big deal.
In CS 4 and CS 5 you can drag and drop fro m the finder or the Bridge, and I guess any other similar type viewer, multiple number of image files to a document. You can configure the bridge in such a way as to allow you to see the Bridge and your document at the same time for this very purpose.
If you just drag and drop the files are linked if you drag while holding the shift key then the files will be embedded.
ID and PS CS 5 have a minibridge which works the sam way but is an actually panel and will stay in the front.
I separate the images but they import one on top of another.
haven`t learnt bridge extensively yet, .. will now lol...
