EDIT EDIT - Issue resolved, see my final post for the details and a copy of the script.
EDIT - I have updated this thread with more info.
I hope I am not being to much of a pest with these questions! Further to my earlier queries I have realised after discussions with the client, the situation is more complex than first realised.
Essentially the files are images of artwork, they need to be exported in full resolution to one location and in the reduced (750 pixels) resolution to another location. But each image needs to be saved to a folder with the artists name within the artwork folder.
So the structure is something like this, an image 1234Y.jpg of an artwork by the artist, Gulumbu Yunipingu needs to be saved at full resolution in ~/Artwork_Originals/Gulumbu and the reduced resolution version in ~/Filemaker_Images/Gulumbu
The ‘Gulumbu’ folders will contain all the images of her artwork, there are several hundred of these artist folders within the main folders.
The image titles are actually the catalogue numbers of the artworks, ie 1234Y.jpg - it would be possible to use the artists name, and therefore the folder name as a keyword for the images, if that helps to export them to the correct folders.
I really appreciate your help with these issues and any suggestions you can give for solving them.
It is also feasible to use other applications to export the images if it works better, so Photoshop for example.
I am looking for some expert help in creating a script.
I have been trying to understand how to write a simple export script to send selected photos to a folder.
I need to do this to allow the images to be accessed by FileMaker for a database. The folder will be created on a server and various workstations will need to run the script to allow transfer of the images to the folder.
In very simple terms the process will be, import photos from camera to iPhoto, edit if necessary in PhotoShop, then the selected image,
1 File Export…
2. Set export to Kind “JPEG”, JPEG Quality “Maximum”, Include “title & keywords”, Size “Custom”, Max Dimension of “750” px, Filename use “title”
3. Export to /folder
Thanks in Anticipation![/i]
