That's A Relief

Photoshop's batch processing allows me to apply multiple effects to each image, and save the results of each effect to a different director.  So I can set the whole thing up to run as a single process.

So each time I add new images to the library, I don't have to run 40+ different batch jobs, just the one.  Which is 40+ times less work for me.

Don't know if my CPU is ever going to forgive me, though.

Update: Must remember to include "close image" command at the end...  Otherwise it doesn't.

1 Now all you need is a simple script to automatically apply the PhotoShop automation to any image dropped into a watched directory.

2 Yeah, I haven't worked out how to do that yet, but that would be extremely useful.

Probably easy on a Mac...

3 Huh.  You can embed Photoshop in a Visual Basic app and script it from there.

4 Or you can script it in AppleScript, JavaScript, or VBScript.  I didn't know that.  Neat!

5 With the folder actions built into the system, watch folder functions built into apple script, and automator, it's pretty easy on a Mac. I've used it effectively for catalog production where you tend to get images in batches.
