    Default Quick help for Batching processing newbie

    Hi all using adobe photoshop cs2 currently. And ive got a small problem that translates to a big one for me =(

    I created an easy batch action, namely resizing the picture, saving it, and then closing it before moving onto the next one. Sounds easy yeah? Only thing is that after resizing the picture and moving onto saving it, the "Saving window" pops up and asks what quality i want the jpeg to be saved. Any ideas on how to overrite this nagging problem?

    TY

    hmm wad abt taking a diff approach. make a copy of the files and use the save command instead of save as command to overwrite the existing file being resized with the resized version?

    Lightroom is another software for photographers to quick process and organize thier photos. Cost about $180 for student edition or $360 for commerical version. Takea look at the link below on lightroom.

    your action should include a "save as" command and save jpg files into another folder, so it will not prompt you every time save a file and no files will be overwritten.

    Not sure if you've solved this but when you record your action you should save the file and go through the whole process of specifying the jpg quality... and then agree to save the file.... not stop half way.... so after you record your action you should see 1 resized image in the folder you specified.... if you don't see it that means you're stopping halfway somewhere.....

    If u are resizing onie to post online... I would recommend this. Safe & free from Microsoft's PowerToy image resizer u can find it at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx select the right hand side & search for re-sizer... it is convenience & as it is approved by Microsoft... it works pretty well exccept that it onie have 4 sizes for u to choose. Very useful tool though if u wan juz to post pic online...
