Select the slice tool (under the crop category), with the slice tool select your entire image. Right click on your selection and choose 'Divide Slice', enter the horizontal and vertical dimensions of your choice. Now choose 'Save for Web', select all your slices and choose your format and compression. Click save and make sure it says 'All Slices' under '...

This font is called Melany Lane. The extra filigree you see in your example on the "C" and "n" are alternate glyphs that are included in the font.

This example should get you started. You need to run the script once per InDesign session. You could add it as a startup script for example. It will save everytime the user saves the document a idml file. #targetengine "session" // we need a targetegine to make this work var doc = app.activeDocument; // get the current doc // now to the event listener app....

This is a "hacky" way of doing it (if you are not a coder), but since you are looking for alternative solutions, here we go. SVG is an XML based format. This means that you can edit the SVG (carefully) as regular text just like you would edit a web page. You could then use the text editing functionalities of your favourite text or web editor (such as "...

That is Estilo Script by DSType: http://www.dstype.com/fonts/estilo-script

Thanks, @fabiantheblind, that works brilliantly. I've adapted that to make it work as a Startup Script (it waits for a document to be opened). // Set a targetengine to make this work #targetengine "session" function saveIDML() { // Exit if no documents are open. if(app.layoutWindows.length == 0) { return; } else { // Get the ...

Some basic Python knowledge and a quick look at pyPNG Code Examples quickly lead to this: import png import sys def makeRamp (input_name, output_name): source = png.Reader(input_name) width, height, pixels, metadata = source.read() if metadata['bitdepth'] == 8 and metadata['planes'] == 1 and 'palette' in metadata: print ('processing 8-...

There is no reason to use a script in newer editions of InDesign as the IDML feature is under Export. Just go to File -> Export choose Format: InDesign Markup (IDML). If you are worried about the continuous steps learn to use shortcuts which is cmd+E then choose Format: InDesign Markup (IDML). If you want to really use the script you're going to need ...

You CAN do this with illustrator, using variable data. You basically have an xml file with the different texts that you then import to Illustrator to generate the graphics. Here is a simple tutorial on how to import an xml file and use it within an illustrator document. And here are some thoughts as to how to convert your data into illustrator xml in the ...

Not quite sure that you can add that exact option to an action. But here's what you can do instead: Go to File -> Export -> Export Preferences then change your preferences to something like this (you could make that part of your action too if you'll need to change this frequently): Make sure Quick Export Location is set to Export files to an assets ...

I haven’t tested this, but I this should be possible with contextual chaining substitutions. You roughly need to do the following (the details probably depend on the program you are using), taking the alternation between vertical and horizontal as an example: Make your default letters vertical. Create a single-substitution feature that replaces each ...

In addition to Joooja's answer, here are two other methods. Smart guides method: Just the fastest ever, if you have a simple artwork. Just select the center of the big circle use move it to center point of small one. Key object method, for more complicated artworks: Click the Direct-Selection tool, hold down Shift, and select the two anchor ...

You could use a paper texture. Either find an old worn piece of paper and scan it, or find a texture to use online, then paste it on its own layer above the main image layer, and change the blending mode to Multiply. For example:

If you have access to Illustrator this can be done fairly easily with Jongware's CircleFill script. Then to easily replace objects I recommend installing and using the wonderful copyToMultipleObjects script by John Wundes. All you have to do is select one "flag circle" on the topmost layer/position above the shapes you want to replace and the script will ...

Here is a implementation of uniform box scatter scatter_box(activeDocument.selection, 100, 100); function scatter_box(items, xoffset, yoffset){ for(var i=0;i<items.length;i++){ var oldpos = items[i].position; items[i].position= [oldpos[0]+Math.random()*xoffset-xoffset/2, oldpos[1]+Math.random()*yoffset-...

This kind of operation could be simply performed with Imagemacick using crop function. In your example: convert your_image.png -crop 423x275+0+113 -background transparent -flatten cropped_image.png The output is: Using a batch file you can process all your images. Edit convert works even using in the geometry dimensions greater than the dimensions of ...

Inkscape layers are SVN groups. You save save an SVG file and open it in a text editor, or use the XML Editor within Inkscape Ctrl+Shift+X. A typical (abbreviated) SVG from Inkscape will look like this: <svg:svg id="svg2"> <svg:defs id="defs4"> <svg:metadata> [...] </svg:metadata> <svg:g id="layer1" ...

Quick primer into computer graphics programming. Whenever you are trying to do a compound transform it is best to compose the transform onto a matrix operation. Mainly because you can specify a complex transformation in one go. OK so no we have to compute the bounds. But then you might rotate around a arbitrary point in some case too (this makes it easy). #...

I found this page that has an answer that looked close to what you're looking for, I modified it to work with the latest version and to hopefully fit your needs better. Here's how to use it: Save the code below in a file with a .js extension Open your template file and select the SmartObject Go to File->Scripts->Browse Find your .js file and open it ...

This is not as hard as it seems to do, in either Illustrator or Photoshop. I would prefer illustrator as i would get all vector. This is what you do: Rotate the image (for easier drawing), to the orientation of your lines) Draw out form edges with the warp tool. Tip: holding shift constrains movement to horizontal or vertical Drag some secondary ripples ...

Yea the problem is, it's not a recordable action, and while it appears simple on the surface, there's apparently a lot to duplicating an artboard. But, you can augment the code with your needs. This snippet will make a new artboard and use copy/paste to put the items on the new artboard. If the new artboard happens to be off the side of the pasteboard, that'...

No, there is no macro-recorder in Gimp. It can be scripted with Script-fu (a LISP/Scheme derivative) or Python. I find Python simpler to use and it can do more things. Both are now built-in and don't need any additions to your standard Gimp installs. Gimp scripts can call installed plug-ins (in fact many things in standard Gimp are plug-ins already) but ...

If you have Adobe Bridge that makes it very easy to batch rename the files using Batch Rename and some REGEX. Using String Substitution with REGEX this is what I would do: Find: ^_\d{4}_ Replace: leave blank Explanation: Courtesy of Regex101 ^ asserts position at start of a line _ matches the character _ \d matches any digit equal to 0-9 {4} ...

This is exactly what Indesign Data merge feature is made for. Have a look here: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/data-merge.html

It IS Dancing Script, just with a lot of spacing and perhaps an outline to make it bolder. Here is a sample for comparison: You can see the basic shapes are the same, but have probably been distorted a bit.

I don't know what you mean or how you are even doing crop marks page by page. You mean you are manually drawing on crop marks?! Go to File > Export and choose PDF (Print) Click on Marks and Bleeds and set your crop marks there They will be on every page automatically. I recommend adding an offset equal to your bleed, but that's just my (and several ...

This is called Plexus effect. There are plugins for doing exactly that in AE (because you can add the blur to planes and movement and other effects). To recreate this is Ai you can: 1. do it in AE then export to Ai 2. use script called AllPoints found at http://www.wundes.com/JS4AI/ and then put dots manually (but this connect ALL point to ALL points so ...

It's fairly easy... using this extension: inx-toolsanim Here I have one layer with a few objects (for example): Go to Extensions > Animation > AnimTools In the Groups tab, choose 'Wrap each selected object in group': Which does as it says: Back in the AnimTools panel, now under the Layers tab choose 'Convert each selected group to layer': Which gives ...
