helps opening multipage pdf files in one photoshop document with the pages in layers

With this Script you can open a multipage PDF-File and create a Photoshop-Document with all included pages of the PDF in single Layers. The Layers are named by the PDF-Name and Page.
You can easily change the Settings about pages, resolution ans Color Mode by changing some Variables. In this Version there is no automatic detection of the number of pages of the PDF. If the numer of pages is not larger than 99 the script works with no changes.
Actual setting for resolution is 300 and ColorMode CMYK.
See code-remarks for the place to change if you like to have other values.

After start (double klick on .jsx works) the script searches for photoshop (if not open you are asked if you like to start it) the you can choose your PDF-File. If you didn't choose a file with Ending .pdf the script stops. If you have choosen one the script opens the PDF page to page and copies every page in one layer of a photoshop document. Every layer has the file an page number. You have to save it on your own.
Works with Photoshop CS6 and should also work with older versions and also CC

Works with Photoshop CS5 and newer versions as well.

After download unzip the downloaded file. If the download is a ZXP-file just open it with the Extension Manager. You will find the ZIP File afterwards where you placed the ZXP-File before (pdf_pages_to_layers.zip).

Copy the included .jsx file in your Scripts-Folder of Photoshop or into another folder. Can be opened with a double click, If Photoshop is not already open it asks for that. You have to save the final document yourself.
