We have 7 presses8 plates per press(CMYKx2) that require skew and distortion etc to aid in registration on press
We print from a 1bit tif file

I have used actions to create droplets for each press works great but would like to batch ALL Files at same time,

Typical File
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1A.C.tif

COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1A.K.tif
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1A.M.tif
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1A.Y.tif

COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1B.C.tif
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1B.K.tif
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1A.M.tif
COLD_SETWilliamsportNov8.WilliamsportNov8_1B.Y.tif

Since only 5 plates need to be manipulated Im trying to grab all 8 plates - drag them to a PRESS A Droplet/folder or ?? and than have photoshop apply
corresponding action required but ignoring the plates that are OK
ie IF FILE NAME CONTAINS 1A.C.tiff than do x
- IF FILE NAME CONTAINS 1A.B.tiff than ignore

Thanks in advance for any help/ideas
& Yes they should just Fix the presses!!!!

Ok Sorry,
Is it possible to create a script or an action to do this - what im looking for is a 1 button solution to help the pressmen at 4 am when the job needs to print I dont want to come in to do it!!
