I know how to batch process a folder of raw images when telling Photoshop where they are. The problem is that I need to use Applescript to tell Photoshop where the folder is and where to put the jpegs. This is all part of a much bigger script:
I need the script to have Photoshop process a folder of raw images and save
them in the same folder (or a different one as specified by the Applescript) as jpegs. This has to happen without userinteraction. The path of the folder is stored in the clipboard so the script has to get it from there or from an Applescript.

I really, really would love to get help on this. I know nothing about javascript but a little about Applescript. I am willing to make a donation
via Paypal if things work.

Thank you very much

I’m sure you can do what you want, but I don’t know enough Applescript to guide you. However these people : http://macscripter.net/ do and they can be very helpful. Go to the dropdown and get the Bulletin Board. They’ve helped me with several basic Applescripts.

Why don’t you use Photoshop’s batch abilities? It is sure a lot better in CS. Take a look at: http://www.russellbrown.com/body.html and download that Image Processor.
