Resize images with Photoshop actions

Highly recommended tutorial that will save you a lot of time if you want to resize a large number of images by automating the process.

1.
 

Click here for the how to create a Photoshop action tutorial.

After you create a image resize action, click File in the menu then click Automate and choose Batch...

Now choose the Play Set and resize Action you created (see picture).

 
 
2.
 

Choose the Folder as Source then click Choose and choose the folder where the images you want to resize are saved.


 
 
3.
 

Now choose the Destination folder, that's a folder where you want your new resized images saved.

If you choose None for a destination, then your images will only get opened, resized and not saved. They will remain open in Photoshop ready for your further manipulations.

If you choose Save and close, your images will get resized, saved under their existing names and closed.

If you chose Destination folder as I did, let's now set up a name template for our new resized image files.

I've chosen Document Name + mmdd (date) + extension. This means if one of my images is ice.jpg, the new image name will be ice0519.jpg. (0519 = May 15).

All we need to do now is click OK.

 
 
5.
 

Let Photoshop do its thing and when it's done, there should be new resized images in the destination folder you set.
