Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

What is JSON?

JSON (pronounced like the English given name Jason), which stands for “JavaScript Object Notation”, is a lightweight computer data interchange format.

JSON is a subset of the object literal notation of JavaScript, but its use does not require JavaScript. It is a general-purpose, text-based, open standard designed for human-readable data interchange.

JSON’s simplicity has resulted in its widespread use, especially in the development of web applications.

Despite its relationship to JavaScript, JSON is language-independent, with parsers available for many languages. In JavaScript, JSON can be parsed trivially using the eval() function.

JSON is now a formal international data processing standard (October 2013).


How to install a script?

Download the Zip file and unzip it.

Move the script to the Presets/Scripts folder in the default preset location of the Adobe Photoshop application. On next launch, the script will appear in the File > Automate submenu.

Scripts added to the Scripts folder while Photoshop is running will not appear in the menu until the next time you launch the application.

Also: the Browse item at the end of the Scripts menu (File > Scripts > Browse) allows you to execute scripts which are not installed in the Scripts folder. You can also use Browse to select scripts installed in the Scripts folder after the application was last launched.
