Batch resizing in PhotoshopBy Thomas Fjordside
Ever had to resize more than 100 images to the same size? If you have you know it’s really boring, and I wanted to show you have to do it by using the automate feature in photoshop. I’ve made a resize action that you can download here, if you want to follow along.
Now you load that in by pressing Alt-F9 to open up the actions window(keep that open). Now click on the options and Load Actions, shown on the image below.
Now load in the file you just downloaded. Now you should see it in your actions window. Open it up by clicking the arrows. You should see a place that says Width: 900px. If you double click that you can change it to you desired width for all of them(make sure you have an image open when you change it). You can also input a height and it’ll use that instead. (If your images are in both landscape and portrait formats, you can use a percentage to get those images to about the same size. Open the first image, type in the wanted long edge size in pixels and change it over to percent – Thanks to Octavio for that tip)
Now lets do it on all of the images. Go to File – Automate – Batch. Put your settings in there as they are below.
And then press okay and grab a coffee, it might take a while 🙂 Be sure to input the right folders in the input and output fields, so you don’t overwrite your images.Tweet
