Printing JPEG directly from Jitter_Avoid Dialog box
I am trying to do 2 things:
1.) avoid the dialog box prompted with the "exportimage" message to jit.qt.grab. I would just like the image to save to a folder on its own.
2.) print the saved image to my inkjet.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can specify a filepath and name after the word "exportimage" in the message box. If you don’t, jit.qt.grab has to open a dialog box to know where and with what name to save the image.
If your filenames are variable, feed the names to a $1 in place of the filename in the exportimage message.
I don’t know about sending images to a printer, but knowing Max, there’s a way. However, I’d be careful about teaching Max to print automatically while nobody’s around. Seriously, printer jams in the middle of the night can be a messy job for the first person in the office in the morning.
Thanks spokeNine and good call on the printer jam.
if you are on a mac, you can use the shell or aka.shell externals and print with the "lp" terminal utility.
Exactly Robert. I found that same link in my search only a couple hours ago. I haven’t been able to direct the "exportimage jpeg" to a file path. Any advice?
I have both shell and aka.shell externals but I cannot figure out the command lines for printing an image from the desktop. I tried lp "my/file/path/*.jpg" but no luck. thanks in advance
the following worked for me. obviously you have to change the path and printer name:
