Just put the finished touches to an LScript originally written by Eki Halkka.

Changes and updates:

- Added many more templates (US, ANSI, Arch and Photo) to the original ISO 'A series'

- Updated the 'Bleed' setting to respect the selected document units (it was always pixels before)

- GUI now has some basic 'intelligence', e.g. when a template is selected the width / height and units of the preset are reflected in the UI

(Note: When a template is selected, the UI won't allow you to change the document units to something other than the presets default, this was done to avoid confusion, I may change this if it annoys everyone!)

- Better feedback

Although I've tested the script, please report any bugs.

Hope you find it useful!

Cheers
Matt

great stuff matt. simple but very usefull.
:) It spares us the time to open photoshop, select paper format, insert dpis and then insert the pixel dimensions in lightwave.

That's very cool Matt. I'm sure this will help a ton of people!! Cheers!

Not a big deal but file resolution is actually PPI not DPI. DPI is really reserved for output devices like a printer, and PPI is reserved for files that are made up of pixels. That's why when you create a new file in Photoshop is asks for the PPI (or PPC) of the image, not DPI. Most people mixed them up anyway...

I did think of calling it that, as Pixels Per Inch is as you rightly say, more correct. But I kept it DPI as most people still refer it to it as that (incorrectly). So if anyone did a search they would find it!
