I was being asked to open the files in acrobat and export them in jpeg
formats (file > export > jpg, with options etc...)
Pretty Good Solution that was
Now those were pdf files containing images, not pdfs
So when I opened my pdfs, found out they were opening up in separate
windows, which is normal
So I combined them, since the export function would only apply for one
image, which would imply I would have to export 600 times !
The export worked marvellously, with jpg export functions asking me
lots of lovely things, ah yeah
except that the file names were overwritten :( i.e. Test Page 1, Test
Page 2 Test Page 3
no cant do sir
any other way ?
A friend of mine at work mentioned that applying an action to open up
the pdf files (they are on high resolutions, so they take time to open
up), then continuing the other parts of the image processing (ie
flatten image - eliminates the transparent parts of the vector image,
set image height to 700px, save, close) would be a piece of cake..
All that is perfect except that i cannot find a way, in my actions on
photoshop, to suppress that window on opening pdf..
