  1. Labels Downloading Link - Labels-20211031T170529Z-001
  2. These labels consist of png and vectors.
  3.  As you can see each label consists of a Shipping Label & an Invoice. I want a script that takes 4 labels and generate a PDF of 2 pages on which 4 Shipping Labels get set on page 1 and 4 Invoices get set on page 2.
  4. Label order doesn't matter that much. But I will prefer to go row-wise. (like label 1,2 in row 1 & label 3,4 in row 2).

 

I would appreciate it if anyone could help me out.

 

PS: I have posted the same question in Photoshop community, you can take reference from there as well. Link: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/photoshop-action-to-set-4-labels-on-a...

Have you taken the advice given on the Photoshop group, and looked into third-party PDF imposition software? While it’s possible you’ll find someone willing to create you a layout script for free (BTW, InDesign is the appropriate tool, not PS/AI), if you have to pay for a bespoke solution then an off-the-shelf app will be cheaper.

Yeah, I have used the PDF Imposition software but It seems confusing as I am not used to it.

 

I figured out that first I should convert the whole PDF into Raster Image using Photoshop and rest can be done easily using photoshop alpha channels and script.

 

I need this label setup for printing only. I think above method would work for me.

Photoshop is not the appropriate tool for layout work. Use InDesign.

 

Make up a “template” document containing 2 pages, with 4 image frames on each. Position a label image in each frame to serve as a placeholder, cropping out the part of the image you don’t need.

 

Once you’ve prepared that template, if you want a simple script to relink those placeholder images to four real images and export the document to PDF, I’m sure the InDesign forum can help you with that.
