Feedback, please: Scripting the Suite
"I’m trying to understand how to make life better for script developers," writes Adobe developer evangelist Mark Niemann-Ross, "and a couple of minutes of your time would tell me worlds about your needs. When you’ve got five minutes to spare, please point a browser at this survey. Thanks!"
[Update: Mark replies to some tea-leaf-reading about doom (or lack thereof) for AppleScript support.]
Use Bridge to extract metadata
I’ve gotten a few inquiries lately about whether it’s possible to extract metadata from images and other files using Adobe Bridge. Short answer: Absolutely. Try John Hake’s workflow automation scripts, one of which (Metadata_BR.jsx) extracts metadata from selected files and generates Comma Separated Value (CSV) reports.
