looking for a small script/example of using JAVA Script inside of PhotoShop CS2

I need to duplicate a layer 100 times by 5 pixles to the left.

obviously, this would take some (for/loop/if) statement.

Any suggestions for Java script for CS2 would be perfect.

Thank you!

    Javascript and other scripting doesn't work in Adobe products like CS2.  They are windows applications and javascript can only be applied to the pages you produce, not in the design interface of CS2.

    Accepted Solution

    Have you ever scripted anything using the script extend in photoshop?

    Because the whole scripting language is based off of JavaScript.

    I am looking for someone who has made a photoshop script.

    This is a workflow issue and looking for pro help.

    Not a reply to a forum or a tutorial.

    You can change brushes, colors, delete and duplicate things.
    The script features are very powerful.

    I know someone out there does this kinda stuff on  lunch breaks ;)
