Error message on 'Levels' while trying to batch auto contrast

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Howard M. Rensin, Apr 17, 2004.

  1. I am trying to create a batch process to take several hundred pictures and
    run them through the auto contrast feature and save the processed pictures
    to a different folder. I walked through the batch record process and after I
    stopped the recording and tried to run it I got the following message:
    Error: The command "Levels" is not currently available. (-25920)

    This message was repeated for all 450 pictures with the name of the file on
    the line above this message. Can some one tell me what to do to get this
    batch processing working?

    Hmm. Seems to balk at non-RGB images. BUT, if you change the Errors
    dropdown in the Batch dialog to "Log errors to file" it will proceed as
    it should and a check of the History states in Grayscale and CMYK
    documents shows that it does indeed apply the adjustment as it should.
    And the Error Log does not report any errors.

    Looks to me like a bug that no one has noticed before.

    You need to record duplication of the layer to which you are applying the "Levels" action in order to avoid that error!
    I struggled really hard and achieved this possible solution. Hope it works for you.
