Photoshop Scripting using JavaScript

I first began scripting Photoshop in CS. Photoshop CS2 takes scripting even further. Adobe Bridge is even scriptable, so it's possible to run scripts from Bridge itself.

It's a really powerful feature that most Photoshop users have no idea even exists. I realized there wasn't a lot of information on the subject on the web, so I decided to share what I learn here.

Why JavaScript? You can script Photoshop using AppleScript and VisualBasic, but JavaScript has two advantages: it's cross-platform friendly and a lot web designers are already familiar with it.

More info on JavaScript.

There are advantages to using AppleScript and VisualBasic as well that I hope to cover in the future.
