Chapter 5. It's All About the Workflow > Automated conversions

Automated conversions

These shortcuts are handy when you're dealing with a handful or so of images, but for industrial-strength operations, the options on the File Browser's Automate menu are much more useful. I'll discuss these in much greater detail in Chapter 7, Exploiting Automation, but for now I'll give you the 30,000-foot overview.

Batch

This is the Big Daddy of all the automation features, and is capable of doing just about anything that Photoshop can be made to do. The basic idea, though, is that it will take selected images in the File Browser as its source and open them in Photoshop using the Camera Raw settings for each image. Then it runs an action on the images in Photoshop, and either leaves them open in Photoshop, saves them in a destination folder (and optionally, renames them in the process), or, a potential big hurt-me button, saves and closes the files in place.
