I have written a script that uses finder twice per instance in the loop.
repeat with i from 1 to (count of folderList) --this sets the item to the name of the file set theItem to item i of folderList --this calls the method that opens the file, and does some photoshop "magic" my openFile((webFolder as string) & theItem, DVDNumber) end repeat ... --openFile method tell application "Finder" to open file (fileName as alias) tell application "Adobe Photoshop 7.0" --sets the author saves and closes the file set author of info of current document to "DVD" & DVDNumber save current document close current document end tell if fileName contains "KB" then tell application "Finder" to move (fileName as alias) to "Shared G4 HD:Users:karrenmay:Desktop:from CD/DVD -webrepros/uploaded too:DVD's:DVD photo seperate DVD number injected WebPics:DVDs KB:"
That is the snippets, that i am talking about.
But when i run the code i cant do anything else at all because the finder is being used so much.
Is there a way that i can still use the finder, and have the script run in the background, so it doesn’t affect anything???
