SUPPORT & INSTALLATION FOR PHOTOSHOP ADD-ONS

Click for Auto-Layout Support

Click for Auto-FLuorescence, Auto-Grayscale and Auto-Color Brightfield Support

Click for Image Integrity Add-On support


Installation

1. You will receive a zip file containing the following:

  • Javascript (script) files with "Auto" or Image Integrity in file name
  • PDF or HTML help files

Unzip the file (if you do not have a program or utility that unzips, download the free PeaZip). Extract files to a folder or to the Desktop or to a place you will remember.


2. Install to Windows or Mac (video):


Windows:

  • Close Photoshop if it is open.
  • Copy the script to the Scripts folder in the Scripts directory. If your Photoshop directory is in both the Program Files and Program Files (86), copy add-ons to both Scripts folders:

    Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8:
    C:/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop CS[your version]/Preset/Scripts.

    Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8:
    C:/Program Files (86)/Adobe/Photoshop CS[your version]/Preset/Scripts

  • Open Photoshop.
  • The script will now appear on the File > Scripts menu and can be run from here at any time.
     

Mac OSX:

  • Close Photoshop if it is open.
  • Copy the script to the Scripts folder in your Photoshop installation directory: On a MAC this folder is found here:

    Applications > Photoshop CS[your version] > Presets > Scripts.

  • Open Photoshop.
  • The script will now appear on the File > Scripts menu and can be run from here at any time.

Installing the Batch file:

If you received a file with the name Batch...

1. Close Photoshop.

2. Double click on the Batch file. It will automatically open Photoshop and install the Batch file in the Actions palette within Photoshop. This happens in the background and you will not see that anything happened, unless you go to Window and select Actions from the menu list.

Note: The Batch actions will not "go away" unless Photoshop is re-installed.

3. Close Photoshop and then re-open again.
