Photoshop and Illustrator Scripts

Hi all,

I know there is a thriving marketplace for photoshop and illustrator actions. I was wondering whether there was a place to upload scripts? Actions are obviously limited in their scope and scripts allow for a lot more user interaction and variable logic.

Specifically, I have developed a number of scripts for both producing randomized game maps and other procedural visuals that require logic and allow for a user to input various parameters.

In many ways, a script is a very convenient thing for a user to work with as you can provide a clear user-interface and doesn’t require installing plugins. For example in Illustator you hit ctrl-F12 and select the script! Thats it!

I’d very much like to hear from the Envato staff and hear their thoughts on building a marketplace for Photoshop and Illustrator scripts capable of generating stunning visuals that are more complex than is possible with actions.

Best wishes,

Hi Jake, I’m just curious about how that works, do you have a video demonstrating one of that randomized game maps?

I don’t immediately. I built these scripts for a personal project. The script that i’d say is closest to being sell-able basically follows the methodology outlined in this resource:

I’ve also been playing with more traditional dungeon generators and isometric map generators. These are all things that you could never do with actions. The user is given a dialog with options like ‘mean spacing’, ‘position noise’ and biome preference and the script then generates the map based on these inputs.

There are a number of “quirks” that i’d have to iron out to refine them into sell-able products. This is basically why i’m asking. I’m wondering whether or not it’s worth my time making the user-interface more presentable and fixing some of the idiosyncrasies that I was happy to live with as the creator but would not be good enough to sell.
