I am working on a project that needs to run PhotoShop's script/action on a folder everyday. It needs to be done automatically without no user interaction. Ideally, I would create a Window Service, because besides running PhotoShop, it needs to run other routines (record the action, enter data in tables, etc).
Does anyone know if PhotoShop can be ran like Command Line like?
Thanks for the replay, unfortunately, Photoshop doesn't have a command line capabilities, but I was able to automate and call an Action. I created a VB.NET window application, added the reference to "Adobe PhotoShop CC Object Library". I added this code to a button's Click Event
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim appRef As Photoshop.Application = CreateObject("Photoshop.Application")
Dim sFile As String = "C:\Temp\Images\MyPicture.psd"
appRef = Nothing
This will open up the PhotoShop Application. I open the image, apply the Action, close the image, and shutdown the application. Literally, you will see all the step on the computer, so make sure that you don't interfere with the steps. Good Luck
