photographer no coding experience

Post by Doun888 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 7:57 pm

Hello and happy new year!

I'm a photographer and i'm using photoshop and need help understanding something please.

Can a script load pictures located in a folder and apply an ACTION on every 2 pics (to blend them together according to my Action)?
Also, i'm wondering if this would be better with Automate Batch?

I have no knowledge of scripting or code and therefore I need a turnkey solution.

The only thing that i could do is change the photoshop ACTION in the script to another action that i can create. Otherwise, i'm not versed in coding of any kind.

My needs are the following: Create a folder or hot folder (don't know what that means but saw it in this scripting community forum) into which i can deposit 2 pics or any amount of pics and the script would do the following:


1- recognize that there are pics in a folder (.png or raw or jpg or tiff, mostly tiff)
2- start the action for every 2 pics in succession (AL123456.tif,Al123457.tif) (AL123500.tif, AL123507.tif) (AL123650.tif, AL123655.tif)
3- save into a new folder for import into Lightroom and keep the same name structure as original pics + merged. example: original = AL109652 & AL109653 saved pic = AL109652-53merged

If you have a better way of doing this, please inform as i'm open to suggestions.

Many thanks!

I see no one has followed up to this post. I am looking to do the exact same thing to run actions on batches of 2 photos at a time. Did you ever find a solution to this? I am trying the script route myself but it isn't easy.
