I need to convert 400 PDF’s to Grayscale and Re-Save.
The PDF files are on the network and they would be re -saved in place.
I was thinking a droplet might work?
Not sure how to go about this - I know its simple but My apple scripting is very rusty.
Maybe it would be easier to use adobe acrobat??
Thank you in advance R260
Maybe something like this?? would this work?? ( folder action script not a droplet)
on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving these_items
repeat with theFile in these_items
tell application "Adobe Photoshop CC 2018"
set display dialogs to never
set thisdoc to current document
if (mode of thisdoc is not grayscale) then
change mode thisdoc to grayscale
close current document saving yes
end adding folder items to
it converts the mode but doesn’t save the PDF without interaction.
the workflow would be
the end user would drag the current PDF from the network onto the scriplet
the script would activate CC - which would perform the mode change (if necessary)
once CC finished it would save the PDF back to its original location on the network without interaction
