Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting event-based scripts, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Automation.
As you've probably seen, working with scripts…can be very useful to perform complex tasks.…In fact, you can even trigger scripts based on certain events.…Let's choose File, Scripts, and load the Script Events Manager.…What this allows you to do is tell scripts to be able to run scripts or actions.…So, for example, I could say, when I start the application,…run a particular action or a script.…So, for example, every time I open a document, display the camera maker.…
And I'll say, add that, there we go.…And I'll choose done.…So now, if I browse and locate a file that I want to work with.…It tells me that this was shot on a Nikon D300.…Well, that could be useful if you need to be finding specific images.…Let's try that again. And we'll open up something else.…And this was shot on the 300S. And as I continue to go through, it's…smart enough to figure out what I'm doing. And pull the metadata out of the camera.…
