Chapter 30. Javascript, Applescript, and... > Scripting Support in Photoshop

Scripting Support in Photoshop

Generally speaking, Photoshop offers the same type of support for AppleScript and Visual Basic. Most of the program is scriptable, and scripts can call Photoshop while working with another scriptable program. JavaScript support is more limited because these scripts cannot access Photoshop's capabilities from outside the program.

JavaScript Support

JavaScripts are run from within Photoshop and cannot directly call other programs. You use the menu command File, Automate, Scripts to access the available JavaScripts. To have a custom or third-party JavaScript appear in the dialog box, move it to the Scripts folder inside the Presets folder.
