I´m searching a possiblity to run a batch job inside of photoshop with actions. The actions have dialog boxes to adjust blur or something else.
Is it possible to save all settings while running an action for the first time and safe this next to the main psd file as a XML sidecar. So it would adjust all follow pictures with the preference. (like sidecar xml on lightroom). When I will run run the job again, it should load the sidecar. So it must check, if the sidecar is available. Or I can load this sidecar with a dialog and save this with a dialog prompt?
Because I will run this script first, than run several actions. One time with a “master action” starting the script and run actions, one time with image processor or other batch scripts (with actions load options) or with pixelsplaher smart replace script (here I´m able to import a jsx).
I´ve download the script on dropbox “XMLPrefs.jsx”. This will only be a sample for scripting the variables from the sliders/text/checkbox you change inside the dialog. but how it will work with actions?
Another option would be fine to have is a script to temporary supress these dialog boxes in actions. I must do this manually next to the actions manager before running the action.
I will run actions in batch with an option to deactivate the dialog prompts temporary and save the preferences inside a sidecar xml for next running the action.
Hope this is the right forum for me.
