Using Actions and Image Processor in Photoshop.

I'm probably the only person not to have noticed the Image Processor option in PS but I thought I'd pass this on.

Today I had a folder of portraits that I wanted to turn black and white, sharpen and resize so I could e-mail them to the customer to choose which ones they wanted, so I made an Action.It consisted of levels, curves,channel mixer,unsharp mask and resize to 700px

..see how to do it HERE

Once you have done that ...go to File > Scripts >Image processor.

Select the folder of images you wish to convert, save in same location adds a sub folder, you can then save as a Jpg, PSD or tiff etc. and at the bottom under preference, run actions, you can select the action you have just made.

It converted a complete folder in under a minute..

As I say I'm probably the only one that didn't realise you could do this but thought I'd pass it on.

I'm using CS1 Cathy, and it's batch automation on here, but sounds the same.
Hoping to upgrade to CS3 or 4 later in the year.

Its a very handy feature Cathy, been using it for a long while. Saves a lot of time with time lapse stuff when I might have hundreds of images that need processing and resizing Smile
