Creating a hotfolder that runs an action...

Postby Sterling » Tue Dec 21, 2010 4:29 am

Hey Gang-

I've got a perfectly-written action that does exactly what I want. It takes an image, saves about 3 different versions in different sizes, applies branding etc. At the end of the action, it prints the image. It's really everything I need it to be... BUT... I'd like it to auto-run on files as the land in a hotfolder.

How can I accomplish this? I've tried the droplet route without luck. Can someone lend a hand? Thanks.

Oh, and this is OSX 10.6, Photoshop CS5.

Thanks
