Batch conversion using custom color table?

Howdy folks, hopefully someone will have a suggestion or two for me!

I'm trying to convert a large group of images to PICT files using a specific color table. (Must be in the same order, as well) I am applescripting Photoshop currently for this but it's a bit of a hassle to redo the actions whenever we need to change a color. I'd like to be able to have a seperate file for the color table (.act, .txt, .clut, whatever really...) and a stand-alone program for the conversion.

Is there a way to convert these images using any programming language that is Mac OS 9 friendly... Java? Basic? Or perhaps is there a program that can be used to force a specific color table? On OSX I tried using ImageMagick but that did not keep the color table in the same order and OSX just isn't available for the place I work at the present time.

Any help would be appreciated!

I would think where you want to go is scriptable, but it's far beyond my meager abilities.

Here are two very good scripting resources if you have not discovered them yet:

· A great scripting webite resource started by Andrew Hall:

· - Photoshop Scripting forum:

Hope this helps a little.
