Photoshop :: Batch Process To Resize Image But Limit...

Jul 5, 2009

I'm trying to create an Action that will resize images to a constant and absolute width (600px), and save as a JPEG with a filesize of less than 160kb.†I've tried Image>Image size... and Save for web with only partial sucess. Image Size does not allow you to set the filesize as a parameter - you can only set the dimensions and resolution and hope that it comes out under 160kb.†Save for Web does have an optimise feature, which does work for an individual image, but not for a batch. The optimisation is done by adjusting the quality of the jpeg, but when you save this as an action, it does not record this as "optimise the image for 160kb". Instead it saves just the quality % used when recording the action. Any other images processed by that action will just be saved at that %, regardless of their filesize.†Is there a way to write the action so that Save for Web will dynamically optimise each image? I'm using CS3 Extended.

Photoshop :: Batch Process Makes Image Resolution...

Feb 19, 2008

In my work I use a batch process to run an action that converts EPS files to TIFF files. I have been using this successfully in Photoshop 7 on a Win2000 PC for a number of years. The process is as follows...

Open EPS file
Flatten Image

When I recorded the action I made sure that the resolution was set to 300dpi as we require the TIFF produced at the end to be that resolution.

I am now testing PSCS3 on a WinXP machine as we are upgrading all of our equipment. When I run the action as a batch process the TIFFs that are saved end up being 72dpi - They should be 300dpi. This worked in PS7 on the Win2000 machine and I am using exactly the same process in PSCS3 on the new WinXP machine, but something must be going wrong somewhere for the TIFFs to be saved at 72dpi instead of the required 300dpi. Any ideas?

Photoshop :: How To Batch Process Images To Place Watermark On Image

Nov 15, 2013

I know how to batch process images to place a logo or watermark on an image. Normally the image is different every time and the exact same logo is placed on all the images.

In this case the image is exactly the same every time but i need it saved in a folder 100 times each with a different logo. So essentially a reverse of the normal process. Same image different logo's.

Photoshop Elements :: How To Reduce Image In Batch Process On Version 11 Or 12

Dec 29, 2013

I have about a hundred photos in high resolution that I want to reduce to (the same) small image size for a website. How can I do this several (or all) at a time, instead of individually editing each one, using my Photoshop Elements 11 or 12? I cannot find an action for this in the action menu. If not possible within Elements, is there anything "free," or do I have to get Creative Suite or the like?

Photoshop :: Batch Image Resize

Jan 12, 2009

I tried to build an action to scale a batch of images by 75%, but when I actually run it, it plugs in the inches from the file I built it on. So the image I built the action on ended up 8.25" wide, but it's a portrait. If I run the same action on a picture that was taken in landscape mode, it doesn't scale that image by 75%, it scales it to 8.25" wide.

How do you force a scale by percentage instead of absolute measurement?

Photoshop :: Batch File Limit

Sep 9, 2008

What is the maximum number of files you can open when using batch-processing?

I need to process more then 100.000 files one by one. The files are stored in a folder structure. I try Automate -> Batch -> Source: Folder, but it will not start with the first image.

Are there other solutions (Scripting, Bridge, more memory maybe)?

Lightroom :: Export To JPG - Limit File Size Vs Resize To Fit

Feb 22, 2012

I take a large number of event images and the usual client request for images being sent to the press is image size rather than resolution, dimensions or other requirements.
Clearly in LR3 if the client has requested 3MB jpg the easy option is to after processing take my Canon 5d mkii RAW file and just hit export to max 3MB jpg.
My question is is it better - ie image quality better - to export by resizing longest edge to approx 3000 px and exporting to jpg which results in a similar file size, though different pixel dimensions? Or are they effectively the same?

Photoshop :: JPG To PNG [Batch/Automation] Process?

Aug 5, 2008

completely remove the white background. Because this will be a batch process that includes others lighter hats, I can only use a maximum of 10 as a tolerance. When placed on a black background, it reflects some white fringe.

I'm starting with the Magic Eraser (10 tolerance), then doing Layer/Matting/Defringe, and no matter what tolerance I apply there (up to 20), some white pixels remain around the edge. Very frustrating to find a happy medium process in order to batch various colors to an acceptable quality.

Photoshop :: Batch Process 1000 Images

Aug 11, 2012

I have a batch of 1000 images that all need to be processed with the exact same levels adjustments and the exact same crop command. I recorded the necssary actions in photoshop, and I can now open up approximately 20 of my images and batch apply the actions to all 20 images automatically. The trouble is that I have 1000 images to process like this, and I can't open all 1000 in photoshop at once; it just kills my machine. I don't want to do the whole 1000 in little batches of 20 either. I'll be getting a new pile of 1000 images to process like this every day or two, so I need a way to do the whole 1000 automatically without user intervention.
Is such a thing possible?
I'm a software develoeper by profession, so if doing this sort of massive batch processing requires any command line work or scripting then I would totally be up for that.

Photoshop :: Batch Process (save As) - Not Working?

Jul 17, 2013

I have a set of actions i need to run on a couple of hundred jpegs, they simply need a lens correction, auto colour and auto contrast, then need saving as tiffs, all works fine when i record the action, but when i run it on a folder full of jpegs, the tiffs are huge! original jpegs are around 5mb and the tiffs are 30mb, if i apply the save as to a file individually it seems fine (file size around 2mb)

In the save as section i have specified jpeg compression at a quality of 8, but it seems to miss this in the batch process, am i missing something?

Photoshop :: Exporting Panels Batch Process

Apr 2, 2013

I work at an animation studio where our artists work directly in Photoshop CS5 to draw storyboards (3 panels across). We are having major difficulties figuring out how to successfully convert our action (which exports the three panels as tiff images) into a batch process,

The action basically just selects each channel of the main storyboard (three channels for the three panel areas), copies/pastes the image into a new canvas, saves that new image as a tiff to the desktop. It does that for all three panels and yields three tiff images on my desktop, which I then have to drag and drop into a folder before running the action on the next page or else it will replace the previous round of images (saving over them).
Using Automate > Batch doesn't work and I am wondering if it is even possible to run a batch or if the action is simply too complex because it creates three new image files.

Photoshop :: HDR Toning Auto Batch Process

Jun 14, 2013

Just recently got into time lapse photography and have been batch processing away to my hearts content. I have one scene that looks unbelievable with the "surrealistic" HDR toning preset. However, I record my action and set up the folders and set it to go, but it seems to want me to click "ok" after filtering each photo...there's 1685 of them, so not very keen on that.

Photoshop :: Batch Process Color Replacement?

Jan 20, 2008

I am making sets of wedding stationary for a photography studio. Each set contains an invitation, dinner card, place card etc.

Each set has a dominant color throughout the series.

What I want to do is offer each set in a variety of colors but going through each image, replacing the color in each layer with the new color for each image in the set would take forever.

Is there a way to "Batch process" this where I can replace a color in each image with a new color. I think I may have to make a separate action for each new color I want to use but that is still better than nothing.

Also, I need to keep the new images in layers as the studio wants the ability to go in and make layer changes if necessary.

Photoshop :: Creating A Batch Process Action

Mar 2, 2006

I need to add a logo onto several jpg images and then re-save them as jpg's.

I start the action recording, then open the image, then opening the psd with the logo, I then duplicate the logo layer onto the jpg file. I then move it into place and then save the jpg. After this I stop the action from recording.

Now when I go to run it in batch mode, at the point it should duplicate the layer from teh psd file onto the jpg, it says cannot open "new document"

way I can create an action and get the image onto the jpgs and avoid thsi error?

Photoshop :: Make Action To Batch Process PDF To GIFs

Aug 8, 2008

Photoshop CS3 Windows

Make Action to Batch process PDF to JPEGs saved for the web

I have about 80-100 pdf's that I want to change from 300dpi to 100dpi indexed color and save as gif.

If I create an action
Convert pdf to gif
with steps
Mode > Indexed Color
Save as gif

running this action as a batch only opens the files. I am left with files open in RGB mode, not indexed color. This means the batch processor did not run any of the steps in my action. (Yes, I did make sure in the batch dialog that I specified my action set.)

Here is my action in the action menu.

pdf to gif

Convert mode
To: indexed color mode
Pallette: adaptive
Colors: 64
Forced: Black and white
Without transparency
Matte: None

As: Compuserve GIF
With Interlace
In: ...

Here are my steps, using a test folder with 2 pdf's:

1. Launch Photoshop

2. File > Automate > Batch

3. Batch dialog:
Set [my set]
Action [pdf to gif]
Source: Folder
Choose: [my test folder with 2 pdf's]
Destination: Folder
Choose: [my testgif folder, empty]
File naming: Document name + extension
Errors: Log errors to file
File: [my testgif folder, empty]/error.txt

4. OK

5. Set resolution to 100dpi.

6. Click OK for 1st pdf.

7. Click OK for 2nd pdf.

Actual result:

Both files open and stay open.
Both files are still RGB mode.
No gif's in testgif folder.
errors.txt reads:

Start Batch

End Batch

Expected result:
Files closed (possibly I have to add a Close step)
2 gifs in the testgif folder.

Using an action of Save for Web in place of Mode > Indexed color also did not create any gifs.

I'm wondering whether the PDF dialog on open is throwing a wrench into the works.

Photoshop :: Batch Process: Add Alpha Mask From File

Aug 9, 2009

I did a search for this, but couldn't find anything.  If there is something, please feel free to send me in that direction. I use Photoshop a lot for my 3D work.  Usually, when I render an image sequence out, I have the mask saved in the alpha channel.  Unfortunately, ZBrush doesn't allow me to do that, and instead saves the mask out as a separate image.  I need to add the alpha mask to the color plate file.  Is there any way to do this with batch processing?

Photoshop Elements :: 11 - How To Batch Process Multiple Files

Jun 12, 2013

I am trying to figure out how to batch process multiple files with Elements 11.  I have installed Imagenomic Plug Ins with Elements 11.  I have also installed the supplied ATN action files created by Imagenomic for Photoshop.  These actions work fine with Elements 11.  I need to figure out how to utilize, or select, the Noiseware Plug In option within Elements Batch Process configuration window.  It appears I can only apply the default mods provided by Elements and can't see any of the Imagenomic Plug Ins as Batch Process options.
