Batch/Automation of files.
Posted on 1999-01-26
I want to automate a job in Photoshop...
I have images in photoshop format in a directory.
I want to open one and one image at a time and do this to
a) resice the image from let say 1000x500 pixels to
b) add a black border to the image with a sertain
c) save the file as .JPG with a sertain level of
compression (let say 3) and another name. Let say the
original name was PortraitLarge.bmp then I would want
to name the new file PortraitSmall.jpg.
d) Input parameter to the job would be something like
what directory to start to work.
e) if it was possible to go through subdirs as well it
would be nice.
Is it possible to automate a task like this in Photoshop?
Is it one or many ways to deal with such a task?
Does it exist any scripting language to manually program
a task like this?
If this is a harder Q than the points indicates...let me
