Simple script for exportingall pages as PNG with page dimensions in filename

I'm looking for a script that saves all pages as PNGs with the dimensions in the filename.

All export settings except for the destination can be specified inside the script file.

All i want to do is:

  1. Run the script
  2. Select destination folder
  3. Done

Each files dimensions should appear in the filename, DocumentFilename_[width]x[height]

I realise that I might run into problems if multiple pages have the same dimension.

Try this where the file name starts with a page number prefix in case the bounds are the same:

 

 

//resolution and anti-aliasing?
var res = 72;
var aa = true;

var pngFolder = Folder.selectDialog("Select the PNG Save folder", ""); 
var doc = app.documents.item(0);
var n = fileName(doc.name);
var nPrefs = app.generalPreferences.pageNumbering;
app.generalPreferences.pageNumbering = PageNumberingOptions.ABSOLUTE;
var dPages = doc.pages;

for (var i = 0; i < dPages.length; i++){
    var pn = dPages

Hello,

re; "I'm looking for a script that saves all pages as PNGs with the dimensions in the filename."

Are you wanting to export each Page itself as a PNG file? not the page items for each page correct?

 

re; "Each files dimensions should appear in the filename, DocumentFilename_[width]x[height]

I realise that I might run into problems if multiple pages have the same dimension."

Should you inclue the page# in the file naming to prrevent the files from over writing each other?

 

Regards,

Mike

– Yes i want to export full pages no page items.

– I don't think that will be a problem. I guess will be overwritten with the last page with the same dimension.
