Thread: How to use Automate/Batch in PS CS?

    Talking How to use Automate/Batch in PS CS?

    Hi all,

    I have loads of photos that need rotation of 90 degrees to make them upright.

    But I find it troublesome to one by one rotate in the windows image viewer. How do I use PS CS to run a script or automate/batch command to auto rotate these images for me?

    Anyone knows? Thanks in advance!

    Create an action for your rotation (or whatever else you want to do).
    Run the action on your files using the batch command.

    I don't have PS in front of me now, so can't give more specific instructions.

    Hi Gosu_John,

    Hmm.. I might be stating the obvious, but did you save the rotated pictures under different extension/folder? Note that PS will change the file extension to psd if you've created layers/channels. Another tip is that I will normally make a folder to store the original, untouch pictures, and another folder with the duplicated copies for processing. I would open the pictures in the processing folder for touch up, and then save back (and hence overwriting) the file without worrying too much. If I messed up, I would just copy the original file over and redo again.

    i eventually resolved the problem by resaving everything one by one over again. i really dont understand how it can show as uprighted in the window fax viewer and thumbnail viewer but when photoshop opens it it is unrotated again. and i did refresh the thumbnail in win xp before to see if its REALLY rotated not. weird!!!

    but thanks for the help
