I have been working on getting all the PSDs and raw files exported from my externals into a more compressed format (save for web – jpeg) just for the sake of usability. The process is fairly annoying, since even creating a Photoshop droplet means loading in a max of 250 files at once and I’m dealing with tens of thousands to be processed. A simple Node.js script seemed like the answer.
It’s somewhat cross platform since I’m writing it on a Mac and planning to run it on Windows, but it would probably have to be adapted a bit for someone running Photoshop on Wine. Node.js makes it pretty easy to normalize paths and is otherwise cross platform compatible, so a little preparation goes a long way toward compatibility.
