Workaround for Plugins unsupported by Actions?

 As far as I know, some Photoshop plugins do not have Action integration support, a choice made by their developers (remove.bg in my case). Are there any known workarounds/scripts that would allow me to execute an unsupported plugin within a Photoshop Action?

 

For example, I tried to record an action that runs like so: Save > Camera Raw Preset > remove.bg plugin > Crop > Save > Resize > Save

 

Unfortunately, the Action recording ignores the Plugin when I run it, so I'm looking for a workaround. Remove.bg does have a desktop app I could use to bulk-process my photoset after batching the camera raw preset, but running everything within photoshop would be ideal.

 

Thanks!

This is not a plugin but an extension. I don't work with that.

It's found on Creative Cloud under Plugins... is it not a plugin? I didn't know there was any differentiation there.

Extensions normally contain panels, while plugins can be found for ex. in Filters Menu.

The only thing that comes to mind is to create a script, for example, in AutoIt, which will click on the buttons you need, compile it into an exe and run this file using a Photoshop script.

Photoshop includes a Remove Background that can be recorded in an action.

 

It's located in the Properties panel>Quick Actions when one has a layer that is not a Background layer selected.
