Please note this task is only available in Openlab versions 3.0.3 and later.

The Open image document Automator task can be used to open any image document on the hard drive within an automation. In the Setup dialog there are two options:

'With this name' will open a file specified by name and location.

'Ask for document' will bring up the 'Open' dialog from the 'File' menu allowing the user to find and open the required file before the automation proceeds.

In either case the check box 'Target image window when opened' can be checked so that the newly opened file is the one to which changes are applied. If this checkbox is used there is no need for a 'Target image window' task in addition.
