Hi all


Is anyone using sips to get image data/export jpegs?


I'm trying to do something like this example but using calculated applescript rather than native applescript.


I need to use the image_filename field for record by record use...just don't know the syntax to use


something like:

"set cell 'sips_data' of current record to do shell script '/usr/

bin/sips -g all ' & quoted form of POSIX path of alias '"& PHOTO::photo_filename & "'"


I'm not sure if I need to define a var first in applescript then use that in the shell script...
