Currently I am resizing large tifs to 72 dpi jpgs (for the web)
and adding a filter (unsharp mask) and changing their file
name using one photoshop action. YEA ME!
In addition, I would like to make the images be max size:
640 width by 480 height.
(this previously step is easily done in Fireworks batch process
using Scale -> Scale to Fit Area
but I don't know how to do it in photoshop ...it would be
nice to do everything in one step in one program obviously.
thanks for you help,
As far as i know, to change the image size using an action, you would first open the actions palette, obviously, click on the new action button. This will begin recording, then just go to Image size, plug in the dimesions you want and after you change the size just hit the stop button on the actions palette. Then any image you use this action with will be resized to those dimensions.
Hope that helped.
Now perform the tasks you will want to repeat, ie Image Size, Unsharp Mask etc. Once you have finished click on the Stop button on the actions panel.
This will now leave you with a Action, you can now either open each file and run this action on it (time consuming) or put all your files in one folder, go to File, Automate, Batch.
Now select your newly created Action and Source Folder as the folder with all your original files in. Then Under destination choose a new folder and click on OK.
Voila, it will work through all your files performing the action on each and saving a copy in the new folder.
