Batch Processing

Batch processing is the term used to describe applying an action to all the images in a folder automatically. To do this you must have an action that you want to use. If you do not, it is easy to make one.

1. Open an image similar to the ones you are going to be working on.

2. Go to the actions pallete and click on the New Action button. Name the action and press Record. Then do all the steps you want to apply to the images. Click on the Stop button when you are done.

I have already made an action called Save As JPEG. This will open the images in a folder and save them in a different folder in the Jpeg file format. To do this:

1. Click on the arrow in the upper right hand corner of the actions pallete and choose Batch. Note: PS5 users, go to File>Automate>Batch.

2. In the dialog box, choose the folder the images are in and the folder you want them to go. I suggest using two different folders to avoid confusion. Choose the action and click OK.

Note: If the action you choose has a command to Open or Save in a certain folder, you may need to check the appropriate boxes to override these commands as the Batch command will do this automatically.
