    You can attach actions to keys in photoshop, so you can use that to automate certain tasks, however more important is to have a well developed workflow for processing images.

    Firstly I make a copy of all images taken. This ensures that the originals are safe.

    Next I batch the images in to 3 groups (note I do this with both digitally created shots and also scans) in three new directories (use copy command and a program like AcdSee, Ifran view etc). The new directories are for Keepers, Not Sure and Rejects. Be really hard on the shots at this point, eliminate any shots that aren't really that good in terms of composition or that have other major defects that preclude the shot from being salvaged.

    Once you've batched the images then move the good images in to a series of new directories, with each folder holding 100-200 images. This makes it much easier to process files and to keep track of where you are in the work process.

    Once that's done you can simply process and save in to the new folders as your original images are safe and sound.

    With practice you should be able to process several hundred shots an hour, less if you need to make radical corrections.

    yamcake, i believe you're using 300D?

    if you're using canon, i would highly recommend BreezeBrowser to you. very handy indeed!

    Are you using a 300D? Are your files taken in RAW? You can use the File Viewer Utility provided by Canon to extract the JPEGs stored in the RAW format easily.

    Personally, I like to view my pictures with CaptureONE and do the necessary RAW conversion from there.

    breezebrowser is fast and i can view a RAW pic quickly

    but the flow not as good as C1, for a few pic still ok...but if i got a few hundreds pic to edit i still prefer C1, no need to wait for the pic to convert one by one
