Using Batch Edit Photoshop

Once you've learned how to make your own actions, using batch edit is what will really speed things up. Go to File -> Automate -> Batch, and the Batch window will show up. This will let you set the action to perform on either all the images open in photoshop, or an entire folder that you choose.

1. Set: choose the folder your action is in.
2. Actions: choose your action
3. Source: choose what images you want worked on. If you choose "folder" be sure to set the folder you want used.
4. Destination: choose what you want to happen after the action has been performed. You can select folder to place the changed images into a new folder, which you must set.

Hit "OK". It may take photoshop a while to run the batch.

wow! I absolutely love that! I love how much I'm learning today!

So helpful! Thank you. smiley

Wow! I create actions all the time. As I mentioned before in a post, I'm a little ocd about organizing my files and doing things quickly and efficiently. This saves tons of time.

I really appreciate your tutorials, Marisa. Thanks.

Ready to try, thanks! smiley

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for this!


thank u

Great time saving technique!

I used to think batch image processing is only possible in Adobe Lightroom but now I get to know something very helpful from here. Thank you so much for sharing the script here.


Thank you!

Thank you so much. I was wondering, if you would do an indepth action tutorial? I've made a couple and I know there is a way to click something to make a step editable, but I keep messing it up smiley. Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge with us!

My method for making an action is to say a little prayer first and then hope it works! smiley Not sure that's a helpful method for anyone.

Hey Kelly, I found this tutorial from Phlearn, towards the end he makes a step editable.
I hope this helps!

Hi Patricia, Thank you so much, I love Phlearn and didn't realize they'd have stuff on actions! I found that I can click a little box and it helps, but I can't figure out how to get it to treat a step as reminder of the step instead of the exact spot. Ie. Save to the place last opened instead of saving to the exact spot smiley. I can't wait to watch the whole tutorial.

don't know how to do that either.
But when I change my PSDs to TIFFs, I use batch, then you can choose where you want to save it to.

I found this online:

the last paragraph of the 2nd answer, it opens the dialog box so you can choose the name and folder to save.
