Code: Select all
tell application "Media Pro"
   set a to selection of catalog 1
   set b to thumbnail of item 1 of a
   set the clipboard to b as picture
end tell

Thumbnail is read only and AppleScript can't work with images/pictures data. All it can do is pass the data to an application which can work with the data.

Don't know which version of OS X you have. But once you have the data in the clipboard you can pass it to the application 'Preview' and use it's function 'New From Clipboard' and save the images. From there you can use applescripts "Image Events" to process the image at you hearts content. You can't pass the data straight to "Image Events" because it only works with files, thats why you first need to create the file with Preview.
