           Summary: Photoshop droplets do not activate actions
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.32
          Platform: PC-x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: wine at mail.4brad.com

Photoshop does not take command line arguments, but offers a facility called
"Create Droplet" which generates exe files which both accept drag and drop and
also filenames on the command line, which are to be loaded and then run through
a photoshop script (action.)  

On DOS, one can create a droplet with a dummy action, and use it as a way to
invoke photoshop with filenames on the command line, and this works.

In wine on photoshop CS2, one can create a droplet, and one can invoke it with
wine and it invokes photoshop, but it does not run the action as far as I can
tell, and does not load files given on the command line, nor issue errors if
the filenames are not valid (which is what happens under windows.)

The main reason this would be useful is it would be very nice to have a means
to pass filenames to photoshop from linux, rather than having to invoke it and
go through its file loading dialogs, which always start from a different
directory than you were in anyway.
