What is ESTK CC?

ESTK CC is an acronym for the ExtendScript Toolkit from Adobe. The utility is meant for scripting Adobe Creative Suite applications, and is thus only for advanced users of those programs who understand programming. It can be used for various scripting purposes—from actual script creation to debugging—and supports JavaScript. It is also a Macintosh-specific program, so it needs to be on the Macintosh platform to run. Some of the programs from Adobe for which scripts can be made using it are Adobe Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator, GoLive, Adobe Bridge and After Effects.

A point of confusion regarding the common acronym “ESTK CC” has to do with the last two letters: CC would suggest Creative Cloud applications, not Creative Suite applications. But given that Creative Suite was discontinued as a distinct retailing product line in favor of its programs being pushed out through the new Creative Cloud series, the (mis-)labeling in the acronym is not actually that off.

The ExtendScript Toolkit requires Mac OS Xv.10.2.8 to v.10.4 to run properly. It also requires at least 348MB of RAM as well as a PowerPC G4 or G5.
