I am in need of an automation to open a nikon NEF file (or any raw camera file) and process through opening it and saving it as a CMYK photoshop .psd file.
here’s some steps to mind:
1- open raw camera file*
—* this may open a separate camera file window for color correction, if so, i’d like to set it to default to Tungsten lighting
2- then open it in psd
(the following could be done as a PSD action, but i’d like it to all be done together with the list above:)
3- convert from RGB to CMYK
4- save as psd 5" X 7" 300 dpi in folder W
5- save as psd 3" X 5" 300 dpi in folder X
5- save as psd 3" X 5" 150 dpi in folder Y
6- save as psd 3" X 5" 72 dpi RGB in folder Z
7- Close file
my questions: 1. what is the best way to do this? i’ve tride with photoshop’s automation, and so far, it won’t automate thru the raw conversion process.
2. What would be the best method: Automator? applescript? xcode? or am i missing something in photoshop’s actions?
thanks for your suggestions… you are all the best!
