Hello,

   I have a lot of files that I would like to use a plugin on.   I'm trying to have the plugin run upon start up of photoshop.  Is there a way to script this (im not familiar with scripting)  or add the plugin to an action?  When I try to record the action of the plugin, there is nothing recorded by the action bar. 

 

Thank you!

You probably need to reach out to the Plugin developer to add action support.

Ahh. I was thinking C++ plug-ins. UXP is pretty new - and doesn't have action support through its API. It's in the works I believe.

If the plug-in can't be recorded in an action, then scripting will have the same limitation... Is it possible to use the "insert menu item..." command in the action panel to at least run the plug-in (even if settings can't be recorded)?

What would the plug-in do when Photoshop is started and is not processing any documents.? Why do you want the run the plug-in when there are no image document being processed in Photoshop?  Using an  Open Document event handler to run the plug-in after Photoshop open a document would seem to be more approbeate.
