I get an error when trying to use the Automate-scripts-image processor function in Photoshop (newest version). I set the correct folders and size I want and then when I click enter and it starts (sizing down) the image it stops and says, "Feather command not available." I don't have anything set to feather. Any insights? The only other thing I have set is to run my copyright to all the images.

Generally that means that you haven't made a selection, and without a selection the feather command will be disabled.

Hey there-
What do you mean by making a selection. I'm trying to size down images in a batch in the processor. There is no selection to be made??

If you haven't made a selection, then feather doesn't apply -- since feather is a command to modify selections.
Double check the actions you are specifying...

Yeah, I'm just trying to size down the images, so I'm not making a selection. Why is it stopping me each time? You can't really make a selection to size down images. Any ideas on how to stop that error message from coming up?

Because your action includes Feather, and the Feather command is not available because you have no selection. Fix your action, or choose the correct action to run.

Ok, this totally makes sense. All my self created actions went bye bye when I upgraded so it was defaulting to the default action, which had the feather command in it. I created a new action and viola, solved! Thank you very much!!
