Re: Re: [PanoToolsNG] Stereo-3D Anaglyph Panoramas
- Hello Roger,
Unfortunately my droplet is saving the trimmed images in a desktop folder in
my user account and therefore it will not work in another account but making
your own droplet is very easy.
I am sure you know how to make an Action in Photoshop that opens a file,
then trim the canvas to keep 1/3 of the width (deleting 1/3 left and 1/3
right of the center) and then save a copy of it into a folder (the location
of the folder is not important for the creation of the droplet) and then
close the file.
A Droplet is made from an Action, this is how I make one.
With the menu "File" > "Automate" > "Create droplet...." you get a window
to specify and set the creation of a droplet. By default the last used
Action is preset for the droplet and all you have do is to set the place
where you want to create the droplet (I have it placed in a folder with
other droplets on my desktop but any location will do fine), set the place
where you want to save the processed images (I have choosen a desktop folder
that I specificly created for the output of droplet actions) and then enable
some settings, I have enabled (toggled on) all options except "Include
subfolders" and then hit the OK button.
When selecting all images and dropping them on the droplet Photoshop
processes them according the action that is stored inside the droplet. The
droplet can not be changed so it is best to keep your Action in case you
want to change something to create a new droplet.
