(For multiple / batch mode image processing)

Do you ever wonder if Photoshop can do sort of things, like automatic adjustment (levels, curves, highlights, etc…) on certain photos or images, or automatic resizing of photos and images, or automatic applications of filters and plug-ins, then saving them in certain folder or in folder itself.

In this guideline, I’m going to discuss on How to Automatic or Automate Image Process and Create Droplet for certain shortcut in the Image Processing.
(Note: In this guideline, I used Adobe Photoshop CS3, this may or may be applicable to other Photoshop Versions. I’m going to discuss on how to make an automate resize action, in which it will automatic resize an images/photos to 800×600 pixel dimensions, then automatically save and overwrite the image or photo files, without the users further prompt actions.)

1. Open Photoshop, and then on the Windows Panel at the right side, select the Actions Panel.

(Note: If you haven’t seen it, on Menu Bar, click on Window then click Actions.)

2. From here, click Create New Set (to make a folder for your actions).

Then make a name for it, for my example, 800×600.

3. Then after that, click Create New Action. In New Action Prompt, indicate the name then from what set, function key (if you what to used it with shortcut buttons), color, then so on).

In my example, I put the Name 800×600 then at Set 800×600 on the previous creation of Set. Then click Record to start to make an automate process.

9. Now we can generate or create Droplet Action, this is very useful, because it will create a shortcut Droplet action that will execute actions automatically. Just imagine, you can now resize multiple images/photos without any users prompt. Just select/highlight all the images then drag and drop all of it, to the Droplet.

To enable to create a droplet, click on File, then select Automate, then click Create Droplet…

10. From Create Droplet Prompt, select the Set (for previous example would be 800×600) and Action (800×600), then check/click the Override Action “Open” Commands. A prompt will advise you if there’s no open steps, then no files will be opened. Just click OK.
