Installed scripts

Expression Studio 2.0

The Scripts menu displays scripts that are inside the Microsoft Expression Media Scripts folder, which is inside the Plug-ins folder. Because scripts can be attached to Expression Media, you can put additional scripts in this menu to access them when you use Expression Media. To add your scripts to this menu, put them inside the user-defined Plug-ins folder.

You can use the following annotation scripts with Expression Media:

  • Copy from Head of Selection   Copies all annotations from the first selected item, and then applies them to all other selected items.

  • Copy from Items with Same Name   Copies annotations from selected items to items of the same name but a different file name extension (such as Raw+JPEG), or has the same full name in other folders.

  • Description from EXIF Fields   Copies all EXIF photo metadata into the Caption field.

  • Description from Text Files   Searches for .txt files in the same folder as the original, and copies the contents into the caption field.

  • Description from Text Lines   Opens a text file and uses each line of the file as the caption for the selected items.

  • IPTC Date from Capture Date   Copies the EXIF Capture Date and puts it into the IPTC Date Created field of the Annotations pane.

  • Keywords from Folders   Enables you to add keywords to media files from folder names. The dialog box that appears when you click this script on the Scripts menu provides the option of defining the level of folders in the path you want to use for keywords.

You can use the following file scripts with Expression Media:

  • Rename Using EXIF Date   Renames files by using a valid EXIF Capture Date field. See the Info panel to view the Capture Date field.

  • Rename Using Text File   Opens a text file and uses each line of the file as the new name for the selected items.

  • Set Date Modified to IPTC Date   Sets the modification date of the selected media files to the date defined in the IPTC Date Created field.

  • Set Finder Comment   Copies the comment information from the selected media items to the corresponding files in the Finder. You can copy the comment text from either the Source URL field (click the Use 'URL' button in the Set Finder Comment dialog box) or the Caption field (click the Use 'Description' button in the Set Finder Comment dialog box) in the Info panel.

  • Set Finder Label   Copies the label information from the selected media items to the corresponding files in the Finder.

  • Use as Desktop Picture   Sets the selected image as the desktop picture.

On the Scripts menu, point to Select, and then click one of the following options (these options select all images that match that proportion):

  • Landscape   Selects all landscape images.

  • Portrait   Selects all portrait images.

  • Square   Selects all square images.

On the Scripts menu, point to Tools, and then click one of the following options:
