Run script without PS window visable?

Postby Moonkai » Tue Jul 22, 2008 8:53 pm

Long time listener, first time caller...

Does anybody know if it's possible to run any type of PS script without the PS window being visible?

Don't think so. I found a thread from awhile back on this and xbytor said the following:

No and No.

or at least not have the screen updated when the GUI is running?


Make sure that you set your Action Playback Options to Accelerated. Having all of your palettes closed will also speed things up.

I haven't looked into it before but I take xbytors word for it. :wink:

Complete PS script noob here, how would one go about doing that?


EDIT: Ignore that, found it.

If you cover up photo shop with something like a .txt file or browser window ............. ie firefox ect........... it will speed it up a ton..............maybe make your action bring a txt file to front while processing.

You can on the mac start your script with a $.sleep(10000); giving yourself enough time to switch user accounts… I have fast user switching on. That way you can potter about on the net or whatever uninterrupted by the files opening.
