Adobe Photoshop is powerful and complete software with loads of goodies. People barely know all of the features which Photoshop has. One can create images and effects from nowhere. Today we will tell you about one feature of Photoshop which you would hardly knew. You can batch resize photos from Photoshop easily. Let’s see how it can be done.
How To Batch Re-size Images In Photoshop CS5
- First of all you need to open your Photoshop. After opening Photoshop go to File >> Scripts >> Image Processor. (Note: For this tutorial we are using Photoshop CS5, but the options will remain in all versions)
- As you click Image Processor, it will open a new window showing a simple four-step process to resize images. Now select the folder in which you have your images which you wish to resize. Also check the option for “Include all Subfolders” to include all subfolders of the selected folders.
- Now after selecting the folder set the location where resized images will be saved. You can save images in same location. Photoshop never overwrites the original images and creates a subfolder to save the resized images. Even if there is a folder of same name, Photoshop creates a new folder of same name but adds a sequential number to it to avoid the overwriting. If you don’t want to do this then you can select a different location and folder to save the resized images.
- In step 3 you have to select the file type in which you wish to save the resized images. You can also set the quality within a range of 0 to 12. For better color on the web select the file type JPEG and then select the Convert Profile to sRGB. Also ensure that option for ICC Profile is checked at the bottom of the dialog box. This will save the profile along with images.To resize the images of specific size, select the option for “Resize to Fit” and then set the desired dimensions (i.e. height and width).
- You can also add copyright info while resizing the images. Once you are ready with above mentioned settings, click “Run” and the images will be automatically opened (if they are not open already), resized, saved and closed.
So that’s how you can batch resize images from Photoshop easily.
