How to Setup Batch Processing in Photoshop
Batch Processing is really an amazing feature of Photoshop. It is fully an automated process once you set it up properly. Batch processing is actually used on large numbers of files while you need to do a specific kind of work, for example if you need to resize 500 photographs in one specific size or need to make some brightness and contrast correction, instead of doing the same thing one by one on 500 photographs which is really a boring and time consuming process, you will need just few clicks to set up the batch process and then you just relax on your chair and rest of the hard work will be done by Photoshop itself. But before you do a batch process, first you will need to create the “Photoshop Action” as per your desired output and I hope you are familiar with how to create a Photoshop Action. So here is the process of how to set up the Photoshop Batch Process –
Open Photoshop and go to File > Automate > Batch
Click on the Batch to open its dialog box
This is the Batch dialog box –
From the Batch dialog box select your desired set of Action
And then select the specific Action you need from the dropdown
Now go down to Source section and select the source type. Though there are four different kinds of source type, but in this tutorial, we will use the source type as “Folder”.
After selecting the source type, you need to select the source location of your original files you want to process, to do this, click on the Choose button and navigate to your source location.
