    How do you use scripting in your workflow?

    I recently discovered the potential of scripting in adobe products and I'm investigating now about it, dealing with javascript essentials.

    Which experiences have you with scripting?
    Do you use in a creative/productive way?


    I think it could be very powerful, which are your experience?

    Here I enclose a tutorial about creating your own script basics:

    Looking the code could be impressive, but understanding the essentials become easier than you colud think.

    Processing

    Check out Processing, it is javascript based scripting language with IDE focused on creative people. It is very easy to export artwork to vector pdf.

    Also Adobe Extend Script is pretty handy for writting scripts for photoshop. It can save lot of time in tidious tasks, but I never think about using it as creative tool. Interesting idea

    I've made few scripts for what I need in Photoshop... for example I don't like that batch export doesn't use save for web therefore the files are too big. Also there was some problem with PNG I think... so I made my own script.

    It's handy to know basics... there are lot of resources online so even if you can't code too well, you can merge some parts from existing files you can find online. Just debugging is a little bit trial&error :]

    Btw here are great scripts as a starter:
    http://morris-photographics.com/photoshop/scripts/

    and here's where to start guide
    http://morris-photographics.com/photoshop/tutorials/scripting1.html

    but I suggest mainly learning javascripts and Photoshop guide for scripting... oh and install Script Listener to photoshop if you want to record some sequence in PS and use it in the script... it's like recording an action.
