hello! how can I automate Photoshop? I have the following task. I have a file, its layers have smart objects. and in the smart object I have a text layer. I need to automate it so that I enter the data in Excel, and the text data change in Photoshop. The point is that I have smart filters and styles applied to the text, so I can only use smart objects.

Perhaps you think it can be done using data sets and variables? Unfortunatelly data sets or data driven graphics https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-data-driven-graphics.html does not work with Smart Object Layers.

 

What you can try is to automate text substitution on Type layers, after exporting XX PSD files using data sets run action or script to apply desired effect.

That would need a custom Script. 

Unless you have some familiarity with JavaScript and Photoshop’s DOM- and AM-code this may be pretty hard to set up for you. 

 

Is the text in the Type Layer uniform or does it combine different fonts, sizes, colors, …?
