I am trying to automate a process, where I replace the designs in this template, with images from a folder.
I started learning about smart objects, and I saw you can automate smart objects image replacement, but I don't understand. I do not think I even created a smart object properly, I traced the space I wanted the image to be, created a new layer, and then filled the image with color, then right clicked on layer and chose make smart object. 

What I would like to automate in batch:

1. I have folder with design images, 
2. I have folder with many templates

3. I want to place design into template.

4. Template should display unique design in each design layer.
5. Like in example image, I want each design to be a unique image.

4. Save the output as a jpg under 5mb


is this a process I can easily automate or batch, can you please help me to learn how to do this, or a script that will help me to do this, and please explain if I did not do smart layer correctly. 

Thank you for your help

I know I probably sound like an idiot, but I searched the forum quite a bit including reading alot of JJM posts, so the problem is these generic "replace smart object" scripts require you to have a mockup with a smart object that matches the image size and resolution of the image you are trying to put into it. I would assume JJM would have made just a generic "replace smart object with image, that auto resizes the image to fit the smart object size" then saves as a JPG, but I couldn't find it, I found lots of other scripts, but none of them worked. Maybe you can't actually automate the way I want, I honestly tried to even direct message JJM and then found some sad news, since he seemed like the only one on the forum that would have directed me to the answer. 

Still a single script isn't even good enough when I have a folder of random templates that are all different size smart objects, and different amounts of smart objects, and I want to replace them with random images with not repeating from image folder, and do this in batch, because it's taken me 5 days so far and i'm no where near close to being done. So I gave up to try and learn automation.

still doesn't really solve my problem since this is for using one template and filling in images, i want to have one that selects "folder of templates" and folder of images" and does them all that would likely make most peoples computers crash

What the developer considers a reasonable price, market price or even appropriate price for their knowledge, experience, time and effort to produce a custom script is up to them. Sounds cheap considering your requirements! :]
