Image Integrity Installation & Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS FOR:

Image Integrity

  Installation: 2 Parts
  How to Use


 

INSTALLATION: PART 1 OF 2:

1. Unzip ImageIntegrity.zip

You will see 3 documents (Integrity_OpenPhotoshop.jsx, Integrity_OpenImage.jsx, Integrity_SaveImage.jsx). You may or may not see the .jsx extension.

2. Install these into the "Event Scripts Only" folder*

*Note that you may get a warning about including javascripts into the Event Scripts Only folder, and you will need administrator rights - if your own computer, not a problem; but if an institution's computer, you will have to contact your network administrators to override warning.

Windows:

  1. Close Photoshop if it is open.
  2. Copy the script to the Event Scripts Only folder in your Photoshop installation directory: On Windows the path will be something like: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS3\Preset\Scripts\Event Scripts Only. If Photoshop is 32-bit in 64-bit Windows, the folder will be C:\Program Files (86)\Adobe\Photoshop CSx\Preset\Scripts\Event Scripts Only.
  3. Open Photoshop.

Mac OSX:

  1. Close Photoshop if it is open.
  2. Copy the script to the Event Scripts Only folder in your Photoshop installation directory: On a MAC this folder is found here: Applications > Photoshop CSx> Presets > Scripts > Event Scripts Only.
  3. Open Photoshop.

Path to Event Scripts Only folder on Windows shown below:



Below shows the 3 files you will include in the Event Scripts Only folder:

INSTALLATION: PART 2 OF 2

1. Once Photoshop is opened, under File, choose Scripts > Script Events Manager.

In Script Events Manager dialog box, do the following:

A. Check box "Enable Events to Run Scripts/Actions

B. Choose "Integrity_OpenPhotoshop.jsx" from the Script drop down list:

C. Click Add button and you will see the script in the larger window. This script will run every time Photoshop is opened.

.

D. From the Photoshop Event drop down list, choose Open Document.

E. From the Script drop down list (as in Step B), choose "Integrity_OpenImage.jsx."


F. Click Add button and you will see the script in the larger window. This script will run every time an image is opened.

G. From the Photoshop Event drop down list, choose Save Document (as in Step D).

H. From the Script drop down list (as in Step B), choose "Integrity_SaveImage.jsx."

I. Click Add button and you will see the script in the larger window. This script will run every time after an image is saved.

J. Click Done button. Close Photoshop, then open again to be sure the events are "remembered."

 



HOW TO INTERACT WITH DIALOG BOXES

When opening Photoshop:

You will see a prompt: "If clicking OK, next you will set History Log preferences."

You can cancel by clicking X, or click OK:

Set History Log as follows:

1. In Preferences dialog box, for "Save Log Items To," click Both (if you want to save steps to both the image itself and to a separate text file).

2. If choosing Both or Text File, click Choose button to determine where you'd like to log all of your steps to a text file.

3. In the Edit Log Items drop down, choose Detailed (if you would like a very detailed record of all steps you took in Photoshop).

4. Click OK

Note: these settings will stay the same every time Photoshop is opened (unless it's re-installed). You can save to the same log file for every session, or re-name the log file for each session.

Note: You can see the log in the image itself by going to File > File Info. In the File Info dialog box, click on History.

If you save as a jpeg file, the logged information will be removed from the image!

 



When an image opens

You will not interact with anything: the image will duplicate and create a copy image with the word "copy" in the image name.

 

After an image is saved

1. You will see a prompt that reads as shown in the image on the right.

2. If clicking "Yes" button, you are presented with a File Info dialog box. In that dialog box you can include your name and editing/copyright date. Enter other information as desired.

This will give your image a unique name identifier, and it will provide a trace back to the person editing the image and the time/date it was edited.
