Script Preset

The FX-Panel allows you to add and manage scripts. Photoshop Scripts are mostly JavaScripts that contain a series of commands that tell Photoshop to perform specific tasks. They are much more powerful than actions, but require coding skills. If you either code your own scripts or download them from other sources, you can easily integrate them into the FX-Panel, create custom images and add some searchable info.

Why you should use Photoshop scripts in the FX-Panel!

Adding scripts into your FX-Panel has many advantages:

  • No more browsing for scripts on your computer. Your script is linked right to the FX-Panel.
  • Create custom images to visualize what your script is doing.
  • Hide history steps.
  • Add searchable informations.
  • Assign any shortcut you want for a script in the FX-Panel.
  • Integrate your scripts to your FX-Panel workflow.
