I wonder if there exist a method to convert a simple JSX script to an action.

I have created an action and converted it to jsx in order to clean and edit it. Now, I want to convert it back to atn in order to use a keybord shorcut.

PS: I did create an action (with ctrl+F12 assigned) that calls the script, but I’d like to have a not dependant action.



  1. Copy the JSX file into your Photoshop Script folder (PHOTOSHOP_INSTALL_FOLDER/Presets/Scripts).
    For example:

    C:Program FilesAdobeAdobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)PresetsScripts
    /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2018/Presets/Scripts

    Once your script is there, restart Photoshop and you see it under File > Scripts and you should be able assign keyboard shortcut to that easily using Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> File (expand this) -> Scripts (expand this)

    Note: If you place text like this at the top of your .jsx file, YOUR DESCRIPTION will show up on the Scripts menu:

    <name>$$$/JavaScripts/YOURNAME/Menu=YOUR DESCRIPITION</name>
    #target photoshop

  2. record an action (with ctrl-f12 assigned) running the script.
    The script needs to be in the above stated folder.

  3. You can simply create an action to load the script. That’s it.

    You can do this by navigating Files>Scripts>Browse while recording an action, then you can assign Shortcut to it.

    Hope it will help you.
