Photoshop Droplet not working for MacOS Ventura

When I create a simple PS droplet, it will go to the desktop, but when I drag a .jpg photo to the droplet, it says the droplet is damaged. So then I open the droplet and close it and it seems to open Photoshop, but then it won't open a new image and save the droplet preset actions to a new image. 

 

I am in admin mode on my MacOS Ventura.

 

What else could it possibly be?

Hi @Samantha29451764ompg do not rewrite the droplet or adjust your Photoshop.

This is a known Ventura issue.

 

  1. Go to Finder and select your droplet.
  2. Right-click and open.
  3. The error message will come up. Click open.

  4. This will open in the Droplet app (Mac Ventura).
  5. Quit the app and your droplet will now work.
    @Ranjisha Sengupta you should note this for any future reports of broken droplets.

The Adobe supplied Action (Custom RGB to Grayscale) works on this end.

Happy to help. The more I deal with Ventura, the happier I am that I'm waiting to upgrade (unfortunately).

The MacOS security team must be having a field day.

Bonjour, depuis la mise à jour de mon MacBook vers macOs 13.1 je ne peux plus faire de Droplet !

PS, CC2023 ou CC2022, les fabrique bien correctement mais quand je les lance pour les utiliser un message s'affiche "« DROPLET TEST » est endommagé et ne peut pas être ouvert. Vous devriez placer cet élément dans la Corbeille."

 

Avez-vous une solution à me proposer ?

Hello, since I updated my MacBook to macOS 13.1 I can't make Droplet anymore!
PS, CC2023 or CC2022, makes them fine, but when I launch them to use them a message appears ""DROPLET TEST" is damaged and cannot be opened. You should place this item in the Trash."
 
Do you have a solution for me?

What actions did you create when you made the Test droplet?

Following the steps above have worked for others including myself.

Just a size modification and a dark/light tone adjustment then the deposit of the new file in a specific folder created by the Droplet

But while doing your manipulation, I put the image on the Droplet, it launches but here are the error messages I get "Error: The command "Image size" is not available. (-25920) "
I jopint the capture of the Droplet

Eh bien à priori il s'agit d'un problème de mise à jour de MacOs et de Photoshop !
Apple à mis à jour son OS pour passer à Ventura 13.1 et celui-ci est plus exigeant contre les Malwares, et il considére les Droplet conmme des Malwares !
Et P¨hotoshop n'a pas encore fait de mise à jour pour contourner ce problème 😬

------------

Well, it seems to be a problem of MacOs and Photoshop update !
Apple updated its OS to Ventura 13.1 and this one is more demanding against Malwares, and it considers Droplet conmme Malwares!
And P¨hotoshop hasn't updated yet to get around this problem 😬

I used to do the CTRL / open trick, but on Sonoma and the Mac Studio it does not seem to work anymore. But I found this solution: 

  1.  Open system settings
  2. Go to Privacy and Security
  3. Choose Accessibility
  4. Press the + button
  5. Now choose the droplet in the File Manager and press Open (at least that's what shows in Dutch, I hope it's the same in English)
  6. I think I had to restart Photoshop

You should be able to use the droplet now...
