    Hi there i was hoping someone could either:
    make a script to do this
    or direct me to one.

    Basically i would like to achieve the effect in this image below (my image)
    it took me around 2 minutes to do it but it is fairly annoying if i had 50 images i would like to convert to this style.

    [​IMG]


    steps i took to do the effect:
    Load image into photoshop (raw format at size 4727x2848.)

    resized to 500 x 333 (image > image size)
    resized canvis to 540 x 403
    (+20 each side, +15 top +25 bottom) thats what should be shown when the image is placed

    other things i would like included:
    ask what colour i want the boarder
    ask if i want to auto save as *image_name_proof.jpg at quality 12
    Batch processing (process from a folder or from open tabs)


    if you have any wuestions as to what i am asking, please post in here

    In Photoshop, you can record a 'script' as an 'Action'.

    Just open the actions pallet and create a new action...if it isn't automatically recording allready, then just hit the 'record' button. Then go through your process as normal and at the end, hit 'stop'.

    Then you can open another image and just 'play' that saved action on the new image.

    Or you can apply an action to a 'batch' of images. Go to file, automate, batch processing...

    You can save them....they will be saved and visible in the actions pallet.

    You can even buy and/or download actions that other people have made. Just do a search for 'Photoshop Actions'...there are millions of them out there.
