Need: Script to traverse folders + allow file renaming

Suppose I wanted to do in a script the functional equivalent of File > Automate > Batch...

a. Source: Use all subfolders
b. Destination: Save and close

...plus

c. engage the File Renaming option to change the processed file name

You can do a) and b) within Batch, but not c), too.

- - - - - - - -

In real ugly pseudocode, something like...

- - - - - - - -

Top_level_folder = "\My Documents"

Open Top_level_folder;
Number_of_files_read = 0;

Do until all files processed;

Open file (traverse multiple, nested folders; read all files taking into consideration some folders may be empty)

Number_of_files_read = Number_of_files_read + 1

\\Do something to the file [I can do this via called action]

New_filename = original_filename + "-" + Number_of_files_read + "-thumbnail"

Save as New_filename
* in the folder from which the file was read
* file format = .jpg
* compression=10
* If duplicate, save over the top of it.

Close file

End do;

= = = = = = = = =

Don't need a GUI or input dialog to specify high level folder. Ditto for new file name constants. I can tweek the .js code to do that.

PS7 preferred.

CS optional since I'll be a CS2 user someday.

Any takers?

Hey Danny,

I'm pretty sure what you want is described in the last chapter of Fraser's ACR w/ CS2. That is if I came close to following your "pseudocode".

Hi, Robert:

That gives me a reason to check out the new edition. Thanks for the tip.
