I made this prior to the pencil sketches below, actually.
How to batch process so that all images will be resized the same (from an email to my assistant):
- Open all or most of your images all at once in Photoshop (if you decide to only open 10 at a time, pay attention to which ones you select each time you run through these directions!)
- Look in the right hand sidebar to see if you have a panel called “Actions” open. If you do not, go to Window > and click Actions. The panel should now appear in the right hand sidebar. You might need to move other panels out of the way to see it.
- At the bottom of the “Actions” panel, you’ll see an icon that looks kinda like a sticky note with the bottom left corner folded up. Hover over it and it’ll say “Create New Action.” Click it!
- A window will pop up saying “New Action.” Give it a simple Name in the Name box like “Resize logos.”
- Click Record.
- Now, look at the logo that you have up on your screen. Go then to Image > Image Size and change the width to say 200 pixels (note that the pixels box might already be selected). Don’t change the height.
- Click OK.
- Go to File > Save > OK
- Then close the image by clicking the X in the top left for THAT image.
- In the actions panel, click on the plain square button to stop the “recording.”
- Now go to File > Automate > Batch
- In the Play section, look at the Actions: drop down and make sure it’s “Resize logos” (or whatever you choose in step 4).
- Click OK
All your opened images will now be resized!
