That is the message I get when I try to download the script.

Can you move it somewhere without download limits, please?

Thank you in advance

Brilliant

Thank you - this script is awesome.

1. Run Script
2. Customize User Interface
3. Toolbar > Categories dropdown > look for Nik
4. Click and drag "batch materials" to your toolbar.

I'm using it for editing multiple bitmaps, works flawlessly so far.
