I have several psd templates in which I have few vertical frames and few horizontal frames in which i fills image and resize. I am not able to create a script which can count number of selected vertical and horizontal frames and duplicate the document with new name based on vertical and horizontal frame count. For example I have a template which contains 4 vertical frame layer and 2 horizontal frame layer. I want a script which will count them and duplicate the document and name duplicate doc 4v2htemplate. 
Is it possible using script ? Please help me 
Hi..sorry about my english..I have one template here...I selected the all six frame layers, out of which 2 are horizontal and 4 are vertical . I wish if a script could count the number of vertical and horizontal frame from selected layer and duplicate the document and give its name 4v2h page..Hope this will clear my above question ..Thank in advance

1. Instead of copying layers, use the command app.activeDocument.duplicate (doc_name); 2. Initially nothing was said about the squares. Now you haven’t explained anything either - you won’t get anything. I am not extrasensory.   P.S. I also do not understand English well.

Please provide a meaningful description including sample files or at the very least screenshots (which in turn include the pertinent Panels like Layers). 

 

What number of templates are you talking about that would justify Scripting the task?

There is no standard for templates and mockups PSD file.  Therefor a script that can handle all possible way psd can create a composite like yours is impossible because template design vary all over the place.  My scripts have no problems counting the number of images the nets to be populated in my Collage and Mockup Templates.  For my scripts  require the template to adhere to met simple design rules for templates.  My template for your Collage would be created like this. My scripts would see they needed to populated 6 images. Saved as a PSD with whatever name I want,  A Script can Batch populate it or a script can interactively populate it. A script can automatically populated and leave it open  in Photoshop,  The scripts cans stamp filename on the populated images. and add layer styles to populated text and image layers.

select layers and try this

try {
    var r = new ActionReference();
    r.putProperty(stringIDToTypeID("property"), stringIDToTypeID("targetLayersIDs"));
    r.putEnumerated(stringIDToTypeID("document"), stringIDToTypeID("ordinal"), stringIDToTypeID("targetEnum"));

    var list = executeActionGet(r).getList(stringIDToTypeID("targetLayersIDs"));

    var h_cnt = 0;
    var v_cnt = 0;

    for (var i = 0; i < list.count; i++)
        {
        var r = new ActionReference();
        r.putProperty(stringIDToTypeID("property"), stringIDToTypeID("bounds"));

        r.putIdentifier(stringIDToTypeID("layer"), list.getReference(i).getIdentifier());

        var w = executeActionGet(r).getObjectValue(stringIDToTypeID("bounds")).getUnitDoubleValue(stringIDToTypeID("width"));
        var h = executeActionGet(r).getObjectValue(stringIDToTypeID("bounds")).getUnitDoubleValue(stringIDToTypeID("height"));

        if (w > h) ++h_cnt;
        else       ++v_cnt;
        }

    var doc_name = "";

    if (v_cnt) doc_name += v_cnt+"v";
    if (h_cnt) doc_name += h_cnt+"h";

    doc_name += " page";

    var d = new ActionDescriptor();
    var r = new ActionReference();
    r.putClass(stringIDToTypeID("document"));
    d.putReference(stringIDToTypeID("null"), r);
    d.putString(stringIDToTypeID("name"), doc_name);
    var r1 = new ActionReference();
    r1.putEnumerated(stringIDToTypeID("layer"), stringIDToTypeID("ordinal"), stringIDToTypeID("targetEnum"));
    d.putReference(stringIDToTypeID("using"), r1);
    d.putInteger(stringIDToTypeID("version"), 5);
    executeAction(stringIDToTypeID("make"), d, DialogModes.NO);
    }
catch (e) { alert(e); }

Thank you  soooo much...it works same as I expected except just two thing.
First : In new document only selected frames  layers are present . I wish if script could duplicate the whole document with all the different layers preset in first document not just with selected frame layers (including background layer, text layers , png layers etc)
Second : It doesnt count square frame layer so can you make the script count square frame layers as Vertical layer.
Thank you so much and I hope you will understand my weak english.Screenshot.jpg

I do not understand why you just do not save the document  as a PSD with the file name you want.   R-bin script requires you to select the Images layers so the script can get the bounds of the image layers. So it can tell portrait from landscape to know how many of each type you have.  Since you have to target the images layers you should know  how many of each you have targeted.  Just save a PSD fron the document with the file name you want instead of running that script. There is no need to duplicate the document all yoy need to do is save the document with the Filename you want.
