For your information, many scripts created by Paul Riggott are now posted on Github at this address: GitHub - Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts: Photoshop Scripts

As many of his scripts had been created as examples or to help others, I'll scour this forum to reconnect the scripts to the posts, as his website is not up anymore.

Paul shares many insights and knowledge with this community, I'll try to correct the links to the new location of his scripts in the various discussions.

For those new to downloading scripts from Github, I have found that it is easiest to view the script as raw code and then to copy or download it from the raw view, renaming the plain text saved file to a .jsx file.

 

STEP 1:

STEP 2:

TIP: I personally like to add the URL source of the script as a //comment at the head of the script so that I know where it originally came from, such as:

 

// https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts/master/Change%20CreateDate.jsx  

or

/* https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts/master/Change%20CreateDate.jsx  */

 

EDIT: One can also download the entire repository as a .zip file, rather than manually saving individual scripts:

Hello!

I have noticed on github there is no license info. Is there something that would hint that these scripts are free to use in commercial workflows?

I know that for many all public github scripts and codes are pretty much open source, and in case of PS scripts basically there is no way to tell if someone used some of these scripts or not, and most people make github stuff public to share it, but recently i have read that if there is no license info, it defaults to copyrighted, and I would prefer to know its all legit, if I would share the workflow, mentioning the use of one of these scripts in it. Also i am no lawyer so i cant tell how big difference it is between using publicly posted script as a tool or having some other part of code inside my product. Logically there are completly different uses, but legally with no license both can lead to potential, unpleasant consequences. Will appreciate any information on this matter.

What kind of commercial use exactly, how you would benefit on these scripts?

 

Contact repository owner to get to know his own opinion and get permission...

I  mean using it (lunching script) during work in Photoshop while working on commercial projects, while there is no license information given on github. I cant find a way to contact the author. I understund that people just use such public scripts and its most likely the intention of the author, but would like to get confirmation.

He preferably shares snippets to shorten time we spend on figuring out how to use codes with Bridge. If you use them to learn how to write own scripts then it is moral, otherwise perhaps there are some exceptions, that is when you wouldn't implement them into own application but as you say, you use for ex. to speed up your workflow.
