Thread: Can photoshop automate this?

    Question Can photoshop automate this?

    Just want to confirm before I buy photoshop. Can it open a bunch of raw files, do a standard set of optimization and export it as jpgs?

    Simple automation is possible but I'm not sure if this works.

    when u open raw, it uses ACR right? unless u convert them to jpeg first then run action on them. otherwise u can open the raw files in ACR, run a customised setting on them and save as jpeg. max files to open is 100 for cs3.

    Not that I know of, can't find the the raw conversion box in the automation script... It seems to work like a separate program.

    Try download the lightroom2.3 and test it up ..... but I am not sure what kind of
    "optimization" is needed .... maybe can/not.

    Yes, you can. CS4 - do the same adjustments (eg fill in light, clarity, etc) to a whole bunch of photos, and have them all be converted to jpg at one go.

    Wow, that's powerful. CS4 can automate open RAW->Adjust->Export to jpeg?

    do note the restriction of academic version and also it's for non-commercial use only.
