save as tif in vbscript?


I'm trying to get a VBscript put together that will open a file (dcr), rotate it, and then save it as a tiff file. I haven't been able to find a command in VBscript to save the file in tiff format.

I can't imagine it can't be done - Adobe even provides an AppleScript that saves as a Tiff - but I'm at a loss on how to do it with VBscript and Adobe choose not to offer an example.

Any suggestions?

Thanks -Steve

Hi Steve:

In addition to any replies you get here at RetouchPRO (sorry I can't help you on this specific issue), here's a site you might want to bookmark if you're not aware of it: the Adobe Photoshop Scripting forum. A number of real sharp programmer-type folks hang out there:

Adobe Scripting Forum

Welcome to RetouchPRO. Hope this helps.

The "SaveAs" method allows "ExtensionType as Variant" as a parameter. How this works, I have no idea, but I suspect its a possible solution.

why not do it in javascript since it's cross platform?

//         TIFF          //

//TIFF File Save Options
var saveTIFF= new TiffSaveOptions();
saveTIFF.alphaChannels = false;
saveTIFF.annotations = false;
// Options: IBM, MACOS (default is based on OS)
saveTIFF.byteOrder = ByteOrder.MACOS
saveTIFF.embedColorProfile = false;
saveTIFF.imageCompression = TIFFEncoding.NONE;
// Only valid for imageCompression.JPEG encoded TIFF Documents ( value of 0 - 12 )
saveTIFF.jpegQuality = 12
// Options: ZIP, RLE should only be used when you are saving layers
saveTIFF.layerCompression = LayerCompression.ZIP
saveTIFF.layers = true;
saveTIFF.saveImagePyramid = false;
saveTIFF.spotColors = false;
saveTIFF.transparency = false;

activeDocument.saveAs(new File(outputFolder + "/" +,-4) + ".tiff"), saveTIFF);
