Automation overview

Expression Studio 2.0

As you use Microsoft Expression Media, you will probably find that you perform certain tasks repeatedly. By using scripts, you can automate some of these tasks. A script is a series of commands that tells Expression Media (or other programs) what to do.

Expression Media can be scripted to perform basic tasks, such as annotating, converting, organizing, and printing. Or, you can create a script to perform a complex series of tasks, such as copying images from a media card to a new folder on your computer, building an Expression Media catalog, assigning and embedding annotations in the images, and saving the catalog to the same folder.
