The other topic thread was about retrieving the count and orientation of multiple layers in a single document.

 

Is this request different? You now have multiple documents open, all of which have different orientations, landscape, portrait and square? Do you still wish for the square orientation images to be classed as portrait orientation?

A script can look at all the document open in Photoshop and look at their canvas sizes and count the number of landscapes and portraits and create a name like 9V3H and put out a message 9V3H,  Could even add as document 9V3H that has  a canvas sized to house all the documents visible composite and then stack each document current visible composite into the new document.  Photoshop Scripting is very powerful.  What you script is up to you when you code the script. To put text is the clipboard may require using some system code in Photoshop to copy text to the clipboard you normally have to be in text edit mode with the text highlighted you want to copy to the clipboard.  In Photoshop image are normally copied to the clipboard not text.  Photoshop is an image editor not a text editor though it can edit text to some extent.

Hi Chikal,

You are not disturbing anyone here. If you want to learn, you can read following articles for the scripting

 

Action Manager Scripting

 

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP SCRIPTING

 

Specifically documenattion for javascript

Adobe Photoshop CC JavaScript Reference

 

It will take some time to learn all these, but yes you can start by writing small scripts. All the best 🙂

 

Best regards

Hi, Just in case, It is also possible to get the count of portrait, landscape, square files in a given folder using Adobe Bridge, without opening them.

There is no stupid question. If you do not know something and ask for help it not a sign of stupidity it show you want to learn. Scripts are little programs written is an interpreted scripting language. If you can find an existing script that does what you want it shows you are not the only one that works like you do.  If you can not find one you need to code it yourself. You will develop the best actions and scripts yourself for your work-flow. Because you designed them for your work and you know how the work and they work like you want them to.

All images where on all your system, on a disk, open in Photoshop any particular image file format.   If you want to script something you need to to design the precise functions the script will provide.

A script has no problem processing Photoshop document array  it can process all open document an tally those that  are Landscape,  Square and Portrait and list all that information. You just need to design how you want to preset the info to the user.

 

I do not have such a script.  Here is a script I use that process all open document to append the clipboard to  my open  clipboard document.
