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...

 

steven
