A New Script for Photoshop

Send Article to a Friend

A New Script for Photoshop -- If your life revolves around Adobe Photoshop and Macintosh scripting, Main Event Software may have released your Holy Grail with PhotoScripter 1.0, a plug-in that makes Photoshop 5.0 AppleScript-aware. PhotoScripter exposes most of Photoshop's functionality to script control, sporting an enormous dictionary of terms, verbs, and classes that scripts can use to automate Photoshop operations. Via PhotoScripter, Photoshop can automatically batch-process images and integrate with other applications such as QuarkXPress and FileMaker Pro. PhotoScripter's dictionary is based on the AppleScript object model and offers straightforward scripting terminology (Main Event's Cal Simone is a longtime AppleScript advocate, and was involved in re-implementing Mac OS 8.5's AppleScript dictionaries). PhotoScripter costs $299 with discounts available for multiple copies. [GD]
