Capturing Image properties (dimensions, resolution, etc)

Posted on 2006-04-10
Last Modified: 2010-04-03
I am working on a Mac OS X, using CS2 and I'm looking for a way to catalog in a spread sheet or text file the file name, dimensions, resolution, color profile, file size and format (jpg, tif, etc).

I know that I can see that information in Adobe Bridge, but I can't figure out how to capture that information to pass on to those who do not have Bridge.  

I would LOVE to find some way to automate this (either through CS2 or through Mac's automator properties)...

Thank you!

    Oy, thats a toughie. Probably over my head, but using FlightCheck I know you can get all of that information, just not automated. Maybe you could get someone to write you a custom script?

    FlightCheck is an interesting suggestion.  Again, the problem is mostly to do with capturing the information rather than just finding it--I can see the properties for each image in Bridge, or one at a time (TEDIOUSLY!) with PhotoShop.

    Any other ideas at all?

    I think if you go to the Adobe Bridge Scripting Forum  you will find someone with a solution.

    (You will have to register if you haven’t registered with any Adobe forums before)
    Best of luck.

    I've actually posted this there as well, to no avail.

    Well, looks like you are going to have to spend some money.

    I would go to

    If you search on Photoshop Script, you will find quite a few coders willing to tackle the job.
    Just be very specific about what you want when posting the job.
    Consider accepting bids from several coders and comparing results.
    Be prepared to pay upwards of $20 to $30 US dollars for a first rate job from a coder in India or Russia. A little more for someone in the USA.
