ImageProcessorPro-3_2b5

Postby jmaejr » Thu Aug 10, 2017 4:48 am

Not sure if this is the correct place for this.

I am looking for a way to pull up the options menu when selecting the Save As Filetype Photoshop PDF so I can tweak the PDF settings.

Perhaps I am missing something, but I don't see a way to do that currently.

Thanks.

Jim

If you mean via script, you can set the PDFSaveOptions the same way you set any other file type options. In Adobe's Photoshop javascript reference PDF for 2015 (http://wwwimages.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/photoshop/pdfs/photoshop-cc-javascript-ref-2015.pdf, check page 149 for the settings you can manipulate.

But if you mean just saving out a PDF, once you hit save, the PDF options open and you can manipulate them.

This comes first:

Then after you hit save, you get the PDF settings:

I don't mean to be condescending if you already knew this, I'm just not sure if you're asking for a scripting solution.

Thanks for the response. Not condescending at all, maybe I didn't ask the right way.

When I use Image Processor Pro 3.2b5 and I select "Photoshop PDF" as my output choice and hit "Run" I do not get the "Save Adobe PDF" menu, IPP just performs the PDF conversion process with no options to select.

Should the PDF Options Menu open...?

Not condescending at all, maybe I didn't phrase my question correctly.

When using IPP, and I select the output to be "Photoshop PDF" it does not give me the Save Adobe PDF Options (as pictured) that it does when I save a single image as a PDF. It processes and does output as expected(?), just no PDF options menu prior to the process...
So I have no control over the settings for the finished PDF.

Should this script initiate the Save Adobe PDF menu...?

If not, how can it be done to select PDF options (I have little knowledge of scripting except fumbling through them)?

There is now way to have the Save Adobe PDF menu pop up.

It should be possible to add these as in-script option, which would requiring modifying the source jsx file each time you wanted to change them.
Which options do you need? I wrote this beast and can drop this in easy enough once I get my source code server back online.

That would be awesome!

Would I be able to edit the script if I needed to change the settings?

I attached the settings I tend to use the most...no security settings and everything else is the default.

That's almost all of the options.

The ones that I can easily support are the ones listed in the PS/JS Reference Manual. Pick out the ones you want/need and I'll see what I can do.

Page 149 or so.
Also note that anything that says 'deprecated' doesn't work.

Gotcha...was not quite sure how complex to get.

Essentially I am looking to convert/save .PSD files to Press Quality PDF files without the edit capabilities using IPP3_2b5 and its batch/folder options.

I know it already converts to PDF, which is perfect, but I would need Press Quality and no editing.

It looks like the presetFile would work...or is not what I think it is and used to load an actual file with settings?

So something like this:(?)

preserveEditing = False
presetFile = PressQuality

Just stabbing in the dark here...

Thanks for taking time to help, it is appreciated!
