Do you like editing pictures? Do you have tons of images to edit in terms of size, brightness, or rotation? Fortunately, this guide we have here will help you in the most efficient, and fastest way to edit the image.

BATCH PROCESSING in PHOTOSHOP captures the edge off repititious tasks. It can be done if you have recorded actions for your ADOBE photoshop. The ACTION of PHOTOSHOP is a powerful feature that can save you time, and effort. Have a jump below and take a look at our short tutorial of how to record your actions in PHOTOSHOP.

NOTE: This tutorial was written using ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CS4. However, they still have the same concept in other versions.

To RECORD AN ACTION, click WINDOW then ACTION (do this action if the ACTION PALETTE is not visible on your screen)


Next step is to click the button as shown in the image. (it could be a PLAY button, depending on the version of your Photoshop) Then choose NEW SET.

Give your new action set a name, then click OK. After giving a name for the new set, choose new action from the menu, and select your function key then click record.

Now to begin recording your actions of choice. As you can see, we are now changing the size of the image for our first action.

For our second action, we have changed the brightness and contrast of the image.

Actually, it depends on your choice of action. This tutorial only shows you how it is done. You can change the saturation, add some effects, crop, and more. Now that we are all set, we can now stop the recording process.

After doing the set of ACTIONS, we can now answer your questions on how to edit the image in batch. First go to File – Automate – Batch. You’ll see the dialog box shown here.

In the dialog box, choose the set, and the action you just created under the Play feature.

For the source, choose Folder then click Choose then browse the folder that contains the images you want to process or edit.

For the destination, choose Folder and browse to a different folder for Photoshop to output the resized images or you can choose None or Save and Close to have Photoshop save them in the source folder

Check the box for Override Action “Save As” Commands so that your new files will be saved without prompting.

That’s it. I do hope you have learned something from us and be sure to check out our site for more guides, and other stuff that might interest you.
