Photoshop: Actions & Batch Processing

PhotoshopIcon Photoshop: Actions & Batch ProcessingPhotoshop: Automation

Have you been repeating yourself in PhotoshopPhotoshop is probably the best image manipulation tool on the planet, but even the best tools can sometimes get bogged down in the boring stuff you dont want to do over and over again!  Well, your in luck as there is the ability within Photoshop to “save” steps that you repeat constantly and with a single click get Photoshop to do them for you.

This video will discuss how you would produce your own Photoshop action scripts which you can apply to an image or series of images. Creating Actions is quite a vast area so please treat this as a starting point on how to produce Actions.

Photoshop Programming (don’t be scared!)

Okay, so what the heck are “Actions”??? They are a series of commands that you perform on an image that you may wish to repeat in quick sucession. An example of this is if you wanted to watermark and copyright a large amount of images automatically. Normally you would have to do a series of steps in each image. With Actions you dont! What you do is “Record” your actions required once then you have to use over and over again.

So with this video sit back and watch how you would create actions and how you would apply them to multiple images.

    :( I love this video… It’s very helpful and you’re very detailed at telling us how to approach this. I’m so Mad at Photoshop, though…. It doesn’t work for me. I have tried it three times following your instructions exactly and when I go to try the action out on a new picture, it does everything but bring the watermark over (the action to do so IS listed, it just doesn’t do it). I think I just wasted $400 on a program that I’m going to go all “Office Space” on. :((((((( Thank you! :)

    Many many thanks. I’ve been trying to find a way to automate dark frame noise reduction and this is ideal. I’ve been using PhotoShop for years and didn’t know I could create Actions and then Batch them. D’oh !!

    I’m not sure if this question has already come up, there are to many comments to see them all but why did you save the watermark as PNG? does the formate mater and if so why?
