If you’re attending Photoshop World in Boston next week & have an interest in customizing/extending Photoshop, please come check out the sessions that Jeff Tranberry, Tom Ruark, and I are doing on Wednesday afternoon. We’ll start things simple with Configurator & move gradually into actual script-writing. I’ve posted the details in this post’s extended entry.
Photoshop Extensibility and Productivity Track (Room 206)
Learn how to customize and extend Photoshop CS4 using the latest technologies from Adobe and the Photoshop development team.
Configurator & Custom panels in Photoshop CS4
Instructor: John Nack
Configurator is a utility that enables the easy creation of panels (palettes) for use in Adobe Photoshop® CS4. Specifically, Configurator makes it easy to drag and drop tools, menu items, scripts, actions, and other objects into a panel design, then export the results for use inside Photoshop. Configurator is great for any Photoshop user who’d like to customize the application interface, without having to learn Flash/Flex/ActionScript. It’s particularly suited to authors, trainers, and other experts who’d like to create panels that make Photoshop easier to use, and who’d like to share those panels with others. See demos of the creative possibilities that custom panels provide.
