Chapter 4. Super Size Me: Resizing and C... > Automated Saving and Resizing - Pg. 107

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: The third section is where the fun begins. This is where you decide how many copies of your original you're going to wind up with, and in what format. If you turn on the checkbox for Save as JPEG, Save as PSD, and Save as TIFF, you're going to create three new copies of each photo. If you turn on the Resize to Fit checkboxes (and enter a size in the Width and Height fields), your copies will be resized too (in the example shown here, I chose a small JPEG of each file, then a larger TIFF, so in my folder I'd find one small JPEG and one larger TIFF for every file in my original folder). Step Four: In the fourth section, if you've created an action that you want applied to your copies, you can also have that happen automatically. Just turn on the Run Action checkbox, then from the pop-up menus choose which action you want to run. If you want to automatically embed your copyright info into these copies, type your info in the Copyright Info field. Lastly, there's a checkbox that lets you decide whether to include an ICC profile in each or not (of course, I'm going to try to convince you to include the profile, because I wrote a whole chapter on how to set up color man- agement in Photoshop). Click the Run button, sit back, and let it "do its thing," and before you know it, you'll have nice, clean copies aplenty. Resizing and Cropping Chapter 4 107
