Hello guys, I am on a project of making 12,500 tickets and so far, I'm at 500 out of 12,500 .. -_-'' I was just wondering if Photoshop or other Adobe programs can Add Sequential Numbers on a particular area ON a picture,

Example: (this is what i 'm doing, i'm doing it manually, saving it one by one.. and it is taking some time, it's been 2 days already)

1.jpg

then..

2.jpg

and..

3.jpg

and repeat the process again ..

4.jpg

there.. i've tried using recording Action but it didn't help me.. T.T also i don't have any idea on how to use script, (if i have to use script, can you instruct me on a step-by-step procedure or atleast pinpoint me to a thread that explains it, because the ticket's deadline is on May 4th, and again i have 12,500 tickets to make)

also the way that i print this is first as you can see saving it one by one as .jpeg and selecting 9 of the .jpeg files, right click, then print as wallet size, for it to fit in a 8.5 / 11 paper.. there..

Thank  You guys in advance and please i'm desperate!

You would need to use Photoshop scripting actions can not do what you want to do. You could print them on roll paper with a script like my paste image roll or build that process into your script. Create large documents with many sequenced tickets laided out in them. The steps are the same steps yod would use in an action however you can use locic to update the sequence number in the setial text layer and position the tickets location.  You need to code in one of three supported scripting language. Javascript is the best choice. you fo not meed to have a dialog like pasteimagerollm Rou most likely want to have a ticket template file that your scrip opens and loop update its serial and paste mintp pace into your print document.  You can look at my pastimageroll script to see how to tile you ticket image into a document.

If you have InDesign, that would allow you to achieve what you want.

Yes a template PSD file a ticket sheet multiple tickets with text layers for ticket numbers is the way to go. You should be able generate the data file required using a spread sheet to enumerate the ticket numbers and write the csv file.

Also, this video is great and takes it a step further with different types of variables and converting the PSD files you get to jpegs. Awesome! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Acjn7HoqrJ8
