    Create an "Action" which performs your tasks. Do this by clicking "New Action" then "Record".

    After you'ved stopped recording, click on the upper right corner of the "Actions" panel - there should be a drop down menu.

    Click on "Batch" - there should be some options like which action to batch process, and the method - use "Close and Save".

    Then go watch TV or something while PS does all the work for you.

    Is batch processing available for PS Elements or PS Limited Edition? Can't seem to find new action.

    Some versions of Photoshop allow you to create a "droplet" from an action. This will create an .exe file that will launch PS and do the action. You can just drag and drop a folder onto the droplet and all the file inside (including subdirectories if you want) will be processed.
