Help with Photoshop droplet that first opens PDF then saves a cropped PNG with same file name as PDF

I'm trying to create a Photoshop droplet that will receive a specifically-sized, multi-page PDF document, do stuff (crop it down to a specific section of the first page, resample that to exact pixel dimensions), and output a PNG file with the same name as the original PDF. I'm running Mojave 10.14 and Photoshop 2020 (21.0.1), however it didn't work in PS 2019 either.

 

I think most of the problem I'm running into is that when you open a PDF, all of the options on the open PDF menu screen are saved as one action. I definately want to keep the options, like open the PDF at trim size and at 6000 pixels wide. However, the file name that is recorded with the action becomes the file name of whatever the droplet outputs.

 

On the droplet options, if I turn on the "Override open options", the PDF will open, but none of the other actions will execute. It just stops running once the file is open. 

 

I'm just using Save As PNG as the save action because I realize Save for Web has it's own similar can of issues when its included in a droplet. 

 

Is there a way to use the original PDF file name and save the end file with the original PDF name?

I believe to import all the pages in a multi-page PDF  your action will need to use a Photoshop script that can import all the pages in a multi-page PDF as Photoshop documents then process all the documents that are opened into Photoshop. For each Page will be a separate Photoshop document. Can you program a Photoshop script.  PDF is an Acrobat file type which Photoshop does not support. However, Photoshop  can Import Pages contained in a PDF file as raster Photoshop image documents and can crop and scale.  If you use Photoshop menu  File open to open a PDF you will see photoshop switch to import PDF with the first page selected. Action that are used to create droplets normally do not have  an open file step the droplet exec will start Photoshop the have  photoshop  open a the files droped onto the droplet then play the action saved into the exec the droplet was create with one file at a time.  When the action ends the droplet will repeat the open and play action for  the additional files dropped onto the droplete. There would be nothing saved into the action for any PDF dialog for there would be no open  step recorded in the action.  And I beleive only the first paget would be imported into Photoshop with Adobe default settings like shown in this import PDF dialog.  I do not know for sure for I do not process PDF files with photoshop.

Thank you,

 

To be clear, I only need the droplet to create one PNG file from a cropped area of the first page of a multi-page PDF. And this droplet will be used several hundred times a year as a small part of several other automated tasks that need to be done with these PDFs.

 

Yes, the Import PDF dialog always comes up when you try to open a PDF in Photoshop. And, I do need to set most of these settings to process the rest of the actions accurately in Photoshop. However, if I were to record a Photoshop action of opening a PDF including the Import PDF dialog box, it would record all of these settings, including the Name of the file. Using your Import PDF dialog as an example, Photoshop would open the PDF and name the newly opened document "photoshop_cc_reference.pdf". When I turn my set of actions into a droplet, the droplet will use "photoshop_cc_reference.pdf" as the name for all of the PDF documents it processes, which means it will always name the output file "photoshop_cc_referece.xxx". I'm wanting to output a PNG file with the same name as the PDF file dropped on the droplet. 

 

Maybe the Import PDF dialog isn't automation/droplet friendly?

The droplet opens the files dropped on it in photoshop one file at a time then plays the action stored in the droplet that you selected in the create droplet dialog.  I have never created a droplet to processes PDF files.  I don't process PDF with Photoshop. The OPEN is not one done from Photoshop UI.  Droplets are batch processors. I would think that the open would not involve users intervention.    If the action has an open step I would think you would need to use the override open option in create droplet. The Droplet would override  what is recorded in the actions open step.  Actions can not deal well with sizes and I see no conditional that will help deals with size.   So I have not Idea how you will be able to make the crops you want.

I think that the following script from Paul Riggott is what you are looking for:

This is neat, but I don't think it helps me. I'm not fluent enough in Java to write all of the rest of the steps I want to automate. That's why I was trying to stick with Photoshop Actions to build the automation. This new window still prompts for user input and I didn't see that Photoshop's actions could record this as input.  Even if I rewrote the code so that all of my presets came up by default, I don't see how this window is better than Photoshop's default PDF importer dialog. After i open a PDF in Photoshop by hand, and select all of the correct options in Photoshop's default PDF importer dialog, I can run my set of Actions from the actions palette and it works fine. I was looking for a way to fully automate opening a PDF in Photoshop and keep the original file name's base name for the output file.

Take another look, the PDF Processor script can play an action on each page.

hello @ibjART07 

Perhaps you need to Batch these PDFs.

Go to File > Automate > Batch

Choose the action set you want to run on these and select your naming convention. Select source folders and destination of where to save these files. and the rest should be easy to figure out.
