Hello,

I would like a script that performs the following batch functions:
apply crop,
calculate the image compression to achieve a pre-defined final file size,
save to folder and FTP the image(s).

And some basic image toning capability? I'd rarely have to use photoshop...

No, we have no plans to make Photo Mechanic scriptable via AppleScript.

That's not great news!

Hello everyone,

I wanted to get feedback from you all about things you would like to be able to do with AppleScript and Automator using Photo Mechanic.

Photo Mechanic has a lot of power in it, and providing it through scripting rather than just via Photo Mechanic's UI could be even more powerful and efficient.

Thanks,

-Kirk

P.S. Window's users: to my knowledge there is no equivalent to AppleScript on Windows.  But don't be disappointed, we plan to provide another form of scripting that will be cross-platform compatible.  This thread is just about scripting Photo Mechanic via AppleScript.
