I would like to run a script to batch process some scanned .tif files.   I installed the .jsx file into the Scripts folder.

I am in Expert mode, but the Automation Tools menu item is grayed out.   Can someone explain some steps to run the script I have?

 

Thanks

Jeff_Arola, 

 

THANK-YOU!

 

That was exactly what I needed, and the quick response is greatly appreciated.

You need to add a javascriptresource to the top of the script so it shows in the Automation Tools menu.

You can use a text editor and make sure you save the script with a .jsx extension

 

An example where you put automate in the menu section

(automate will show on the Autmation Tools menu)

 

//
/*
<javascriptresource>
<name>16 Bit Levels Adjustment Layer</name>
<about>creates 16 bit levels adjustment layer</about>
<category>Layers</category>
<menu>automate</menu>
</javascriptresource>
*/
//
