converting actions into script

Hello Guys,

Might be a quick answer for you or maybe not.

I have never scripted anything in my life (except a few macro files in excel) and I am green to this.

Simple question - I have a few "actions" in photoshop and I would like them to be converted into scripts as it might come handy for the future as I will be working with some scripters.

So how do I transform this ATN file into a script?

The reason behind it is that I am already having one action that has 2 scripts in it and in the future I want to add more, so I will need someone scripting to work on the script itself not actions.

Maybe it is also counter-productive so give me your opinion,

thanks.

Olaf

Give xtools by xbytor a try. The tool kit has an ActionToJavascript option.

Is it possible to revert? I have a script with jamEngine that was converted using your script but I'd like it back as an action

I don't think Xbytor looks at these forums any more. Not sure about doing what you want, you might just have to rerecord the action.
