I would like to convert thousands of images to pen and ink style like this. How can I automate this so I don't have to manually go into Photoshop for each image and apply the action and hit export? Can I do this from the command line or some programming language somehow?

    Do you know "Javascript"??? You can use File & Folder Object for accessing all the files via loops and then you can tell Photoshop to play action via app.doAction() command and then save those results via document.saveAs() command. Hope you find this useful :D – Mr.Online Nov 5 '20 at 4:53

  • There's no need to do it from the command line or program anything. See Processing Batch Files. – Billy Kerr Nov 5 '20 at 9:59
  • @BillyKerr but what if you want to since your doing other stuff too?!? But yeah phptoshop actions can be called from commandline. As kan a COM and Applescript – joojaa Nov 5 '20 at 12:56
