Automating Photoshop (08/11/2012)

I’ve been obsessed with automating and scripting things for a while now. I know it’s weird, but I actually enjoy scripting. It’s precise, it’s quick it’s efficient.

I’ve been using vbscript a lot, since you can automate most core components of Windows, you can automate Microsoft Office and also, it’s very easy. It has a syntax that really makes sense to me. There aren’t lots of curly braces, which I’m not a big fan of.

However, today, by chance, I discovered that you can automate much of Photoshop too using Actions. It essentially works by creating a Macro. You click on Window => Actions¬†and then you can record a new action. I wish I’d known this yesterday when I went through and recoloured 26 images. But oh well, you live and learn. So I’ll be less stupid next time, which is all I can hope for.
