Chap52

  1. 1.  Outline the steps to run an action on a folder of files.
  2. 2. In This Chapter, you’ll learn on:  What is batch processing?  Outline the steps to run an action on a folder of files
  3. 3.  What is Batch Processing?  Batch processing is the execution of a series of programs (also known as „jobs‟) on a computer without the need of manual intervention.   Basically, a program takes a set of data files as input, processes the data, and produces a set of output data files. As the input data are collected by batches, and processed in batches by the program, this operating environment is termed as "batch processing"
  4. 4.  The usage for Batch Processing  As we mentioned, batch jobs are set up so they can be run to completion without manual intervention, so all input data is preselected through scripts or command-line parameters. This is in contrast to "online" or interactive programs which prompt the user for such input. An example of this is when you need to resize a lot of images or convert them to another format.
  5. 5.  Batch-process files  Do one of the following: o Choose File > Automate > Batch (Photoshop) o Choose Tools > Photoshop > Batch (Bridge)  Specify the action you want to use to process files from the Set and Action pop-up menus. The menus display actions available in the Actions panel. You may need to choose a different set or load a set in the panel if you don‟t see your action.
  6. 6.  Batch-process files  Choose the files to process from the Source pop-up menu:  Folder Processes files in a folder you specify. Click Choose to locate and select the folder.  Import Processes images from a digital camera, scanner, or a PDF document.  Opened Files Processes all open files.  Bridge Processes selected files in Adobe Bridge. If no files are selected, the files in the current Bridge folder are processed.  Set processing, saving, and file naming options.
  7. 7.  Batch-process files in nested folders into different formats  Process your folders as you would normally, until the Destination step.  Choose Save And Close for the destination. You can specify options for Override Action “Save As” Commands to do the following: o If the “Save As” step in the action contains a file name, this name is overridden by the name of the document being saved; all “Save As” steps are treated as if they were recorded without a file name. o The folder you specified in the “Save As” action step is overridden by the document‟s original folder.  Note: You must have a “Save As” step in the action; the Batch command does not automatically save files.
  8. 8.  Batch-process files in nested folders into different formats  You can use this procedure, for example, to sharpen, resize, and save images as JPEGs in their original folders. You create an action that has a sharpen step, a resize step, and then a “Save As JPEG” step. When you batch-process this action, you select Include All Subfolders, make the destination Save And Close, and select Override Action “Save As” Commands.
