Working with the Image Processor in Photoshop

Here’s a little tip that could prove to be a great time saver for you when you’re trying to convert an image over to JPEG  (or maybe a whole folder)  without having to open and save every image individually.  There are actually a number of ways to do this in Photoshop. You could create an   Action to do this for you or run them in Batch mode, but there is a hidden feature that a lot of people don’t even know about that could do the trick pretty easily.

The feature is called the Image Processor and it’s actually been around for quite a few years in Photoshop.  To find it, go up to the File drop down menu, choose Scripts, and then click on Image Processor.  In the Image Processor you can access a tool that will save your images to a different format, a different color space, compress them, and even change their sizes or even change them over to TIFF or PSD files.  If you need to, you can  have it run an Action while it’s converting your images and even add your copyright info for you! Nice huh?

I hope you find this tip helpful. Remember, as always, keep shooting and have some fun!
