I´ve created a script and it´s working fine, but i´ve one problem:

I need that the script process all subfolders on a particular folder. This subfolders will have different names and i dont kwon their names in advance. Is it possible to specify in the script that all subfolders on a particular folder are processed although i do not know the names of the sub folders in advance ?

EXAMPLE: I will create a folder like : c:\photos that i will put as the source folder on my script, and the users on the network will create subfolders (on the folder c:\photos) that i dónt know the name. I need that the script process all images created on theses subfolders by just double clicking my script file, without the need of specyfing the subfolders name.

So if a user creates a subfolder c:\photos\event_x and other user creates a subfolders c:\photos\event_y and so on (i WILL NOT know the names of these subfolders in advance) every image that will be put on these subfolders are processed, when i run the script file.

I wait for your answer.

Thanks a lot.

You have to manually edit the script and add the Subfolders="1" attribute:

Code: Select all

<Search Path="c:\photos\*.*" Subfolders="1" />
You can find more information about Scripts in Help > Advanced > Scripts.

Please let us know if there is something else.

Thank for your help, after deleting the "Image Path" node and creating the node "Search Path" it worked perfectlly.

The images node stayed like this:

<Search Path="c:/fotos/*.*" Subfolders="1" />
