Things you need
- Photoshop CS2 or newer
Install Adobe Photoshop CS2 (version 9) or newer on a Web server. Activate DCOM Process Launcher, WIA (Windows Image Acquisition), Mime-Association, ExtendScript Toolkit Removal, Default User and Usermode.
Confirm that the DCOM Server Process Launcher is started on the Web server. It's found in the Administrative Tools/Component Services Shortcut.
Make sure WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) service is started. It's also found in the Administrative Tools/Component Services Shortcut.
Change the configuration that Adobe assigns JSX files from the default ExtendScript Toolkit to opening Photoshop when a JSX file is double-clicked.
Activate the default user account to engage the process of triggering Photoshop from a Web page. Depending on the Web server, the network service account may need to be attached to this folder with "Modify, Read & Execute," "List Folder Contents" and "Read" and "Write" permissions activated.
Confirm that the Usermode folder in the \Windows\debug folder also has the network service account attached to it with the same permissions active: "Modify, Read & Execute," "List Folder Contents" and "Read" and "Write" permissions.
Restart the Web server to activate all changes, if you don't have an option to save the changes.
Tips and warnings
- When using Photoshop CS3 instead of Photoshop CS2, a prompt may appear regarding "Trusted Source," which opens with a Yes/No dialogue menu box. If this prompt appears, the file path for JSX files must be altered: [Photoshop Application Install Folder]/Presets/Scripts.
- View prebuilt Java scripts on your local computer at D:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Presets/Scripts.
