comment Can I get more info added to my Custom Output Settings in Photoshop (dimensions/color mode)?
By 'get this info to show up' I'm talking about the Output Settings where you can dictate how files are named when saved. Photoshop has a short list of variables you can use like doc. name, slide name, and date. But I would like to use things like dimensions and color mode too. Putting this info in the metadata won't get it into the filename. My goal is to save a file with a filename likethis: filename_480x60_rgb.ext

comment Can I transform an image's location in a Photoshop action so that it's relative to the canvas and NOT the image?
It's for an action that will automatically paste an image from my clipboard onto my canvas. The pasted image could be absolutely any size, but I need to consistently size it and position it relative to my canvas and a specific layer. More specifically it's for some weekly email newsletter advertising that I'm trying to streamline the process for.

Oh snap, perfect Alan! Thanks! So much simpler. I'd rep you up if I could!

To clarify, this only works if the background layer is locked by default, or by using Layer > New > Background from Layer. If I lock the background layer using the Lock icon on the Layers Palette, you can't use the align tools.

Thanks for the reply. I had been using your method previously. My problem was that if my image to be aligned was above or to the left of my canvas, my aligning layer (the background), would get pulled over with it. Looked at your action and noticed that with the background layer locked it becomes a non-issue. Thanks!

comment How can I create an action to increase my canvas size in Photoshop ONLY if the canvas is X?
Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling it was going to take some scripting to pull this off. I was just hoping there was some built-in Photoshop menu(s) I had overlooked that would make this simple.
