Thanks for getting back to me, yep that must be frustrating. I assumed too much was standard practice with the batching and the scripts/ I thought there must be a posting someplace that tells the step by step of implementing scripts generally for Photoshop that everyone else must know about. People like me drive ME crazy!!! I shouldn't write on forums after going mental in front of the problem....
I'll do my best to provide useful information this time around:
What OS and version are you using ? OSX iMac (i7 Chip, 8Gig Ram)
What version of Photoshop ? CS4
Are you using files selected in Bridge or are they in a folder ? I am using the image folders they are the jpg's for 5 or more sites, thumbs and images for galleries.
Are the files in sub-folders ? The folders are scattered appropriately through a tree of websites (5 sites sitting within another main site). I would not mind applying the script to each folder separately if needed.
What type of files are you wanting to process ? Mainly jpg but a handful of PNG's which can be done manually.
Have you selected the right file type or selected "All Files" ? I have tried a variety of ways and have basically confused myself so much now as to what works I don't know which way is up (I'm from Down Under anyway).
What type of files do you want for the output ? I want to overwrite the files as jpeg's of optimized standards for efficient and effective browser use with Flash/XML/html based sites.
Are the input/output file on local discs or on a server ? I am working from my computer HD and I synchronize using Dreamweaver when times are happier.
I have used the following tutorial for batching once before successfully (after much failure in understanding the relationships between the actions and the batching window/menu) I do not clearly understand how the batch processor works 100% and not at all how the script works with it.http://www.ehow.com/how_5050521_resize- ... op-cs.html
I tried implementing a couple of the different versions you made but will of course utilize the one you recommend.
I apologize for being such an informative whining Nub but I would hugely appreciate being able to implement this script - it's a brilliant solution.
Thank you for responding.
