Batch Processing how is it done

Hi i have just got back from an event with 1500 images and was wondering is there a way to batch process the lot so i can resize them all the same size and even place my logo on them? Could this be done with all the images ie: the portrait and horizontal?.

I have cs3 but not sure if this is capable or even possible any help please

Re: Batch Processing how is it done

Yes. You can create an action to do this and then use batch process from Bridge. It's much easier to do the landscape and portrait files separately (resize is fine since you just use %) the logo might be a different story. The batch process is a little daunting just because of the presence of so many options but easy enough if you ignore the ones you don't need.

I think you can do this with Lightroom, not sure about the logo though like Vinny said. If you don't have lightroom that might not help, but you could download the trial and use it for these images...

Re: Batch Processing how is it done

PS can't, nativly, resize depending on the format of the picture - e.g. "resize to 1000px on the longest side". Actions will do it but you need one for landscape and one for portrait.

I find this a bit annoying so after a bit of hunting I found this: -
http://www.digitalmsx.com/software.php

It's a JSX file which you can configure to resize to whatever you want on the largest side (or to a fixed size). It can also, optionally, add watermarks, text or a border to each image.

You can call the script from within an action which in turn lets you call the action from Bridge.


As for a step by step... Dunno if anyone else could be bothered to do one as it's quite a lot of work especially given the help with PS/Bridge covers the whole Actions and Batch Processing topics quite extensivly.
