Load Files into Photoshop Layers?
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:53:49 AM »
Is there a way to mimic the Bridge action 'Tools / Photoshop / Load Files in Photoshop Layers' within PM 5?

It should be possible to do with some Photoshop scripting.

PM already allows you to run Photoshop droplets on selected files. The droplet can execute any Photoshop script. I am not sure if it's possible for the script to take as input the files parsed to it by the droplet, but if yes, you would "just" need to create a script that takes the parsed files, makes a new document and puts them in layers. Look at "Load Files into Stack.jsx" in your Photoshop scripts folder as the basis of your script.

You would then create a PS action invoking the script, save it as a droplet, and use PM's Send to droplet.
