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.

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.
