View Full Version : Rotating Images with Applescript

Nov 20, 2005, 07:28 PM
I've got an Applescript that rotates my photo's counter clockwise 90°, but there is a slight problem with it. Problem is that if I drag my images to the script I get the error The variable theImage is not defined. I can press Edit or OK. If I press Edit then compile and save I can drag and rotate my pictures fine. But I always have to edit/compile/save first.

Could use some help. Code below.
on open theFiles

set theFiles to theFiles as list

repeat with aFile in theFiles

set aFile to aFile as alias

tell application "Image Events"
set theImage to open aFile
rotate theImage to angle 270
save theImage in aFile
close aFile
end tell

end repeat

end open
