AuthorSubject: AppleScript for converting PSD files to TIFF   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Micah Diamond
Posted on Thu Jun 10, 2004 3:21 PM

I am having an applescript developed that can scan a specified directory for photoshop documents (psd files) and convert them to tiff files with all the appropriate settings enabled....which brings me to my first question which is... what are the appropriate settings? Please click the link below to see a screenshot of a psd files that I used for an example and converted it to a tiff file...

http://www.micahdiamond.com/personal/tiff_save_options.htm

Are all of these settings correct? There was recently a forum discussion about this topic in which Bruce explained his workflow, and I believe this screenshot represents how he would set his tiff options to when saving a tiff file, but I just wanted to check before using a script to convert 10,000+ edited images....

I also tested saving out a psd file as a tiff, having created a layer, an alpha channel and an annotation on the psd file prior to the save, and it seems that there would be no conflicts here as well? Is this right?

Are there any Photoshop preferences regarding tiff files that I should be sure to set properly prior to running such a script?

On to my next question...is performing a task like this best done via photoshop (assuming that I can afford to let me computer run over-night and then some to get the job done right, or is there another method that might work better...like perhaps using another program like Graphic Converter or even the Finder-MacOSX 10.3-that could do the job just as well with all the same settings, without having to open each image in Photoshop first?

Can anyone think of any other vaiables that might play in here that could cause me problems when running such a script?

Thanks!
