Making and Batching Actions
Subscribe to Phlearn
Today we are covering how to create actions and then use them as a batch edit. The first important step is to open an image and create your action. To do this go to WINDOW and to ACTIONS. Then use the new action button to create a new action. As you edit your photo, everything you do is recorded. Be sure to not be specific to any image, avoiding things like “select layer 2″. This will make your action work on any photo.
Once you have created your action, it is time to run it as a batch. Go to FILE – AUTOMATE – BATCH to enter the Batch menu. Here you will choose your folder of images. I suggest copying images in separate folders, making sure you will not copy over the originals. Be sure to have the setting the same as I have shown and you are ready to go!
