Mars Premedia is William Campbell, a prepress operator and programmer who began his career in graphic arts as a paste-up artist back in the days of rubber cement and Letraset. During his early career, William was also tinkering with computers, making natural the transition to digital when computers revolutionized the printing industry. In the decades since, William has amassed experience in both graphic reproduction and computer science. His expertise encompasses all aspects of prepress, color management, print production, and the computer systems that make it all happen in this modern age. A Photoshop operator since 1992, William is a highly-regarded talent at color correction and image retouching. His knowledge of book production and color reproduction contributes to lavish coffee table books, corporate backgrounds, and historical volumes. As a programmer, William has developed websites, process automation, and management information systems over the years. Today he specializes in JavaScript for Adobe applications.

Adobe Creative Cloud Scripting

As a prepress operator as well as a programmer, when burdened by a repetitive task, I open a code editor and devise a time-saving solution. Here are some of the solutions I have developed. Use the contact page to get in touch, seek help with a script, or report flaws in any tools offered here. And feel free to describe your own design or prepress challenges, and suggestions for tools that might help solve those challenges. I’ll see what I can do.

IMPORTANT: scripts are developed for the latest Adobe Creative Cloud applications. Many scripts work in CC 2018 and later, even some as far back as CS6, but may not perform as expected, or run at all, when used in versions prior to 2018. Photoshop features Select Subject and Preserve Details 2.0 definitely fail prior to CC 2018 (version 19) as the features do not exist in earlier versions. For best results use the latest versions of Adobe Creative Cloud applications.
