Make skin look perfect in one-click with these AI-powered Photoshop actions.
Step 9Leave Override Action “Open” Commands unchecked since we didn’t open any files while recording our action. Leave Include All Subfolders unchecked since there aren’t any subfolders in the stock pack we’re using. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs and Suppress Color Profile Warnings should be checked to avoid having to confirm profile changes and options dialogs for every image in the batch. Most JPEG images will have an embedded sRGB color profile and by default Photoshop’s Working RGB is sRGB so there shouldn’t be any Color Profile Warnings anyway. If there is no embedded profile in an image Photoshop can assign the working sRGB profile to the image. It's important to have no dialogs pop up during the batch otherwise it defeats the purpose of the automation. You want to be able to click OK and walk away while Photoshop does the work for you.
Step 10Create a new folder on your Desktop called “Batch Process Images Resized.” Back in the batch window in Photoshop set this folder as the Destination folder. Make sure Override Action Save As Commands is ticked so that the batch uses only our file settings from the action and not the save location.
Step 11Finally, choose a File Naming Template for your exported images. We can stick with the default template for now. Make sure the Windows and Mac OS Compatibility tick boxes are checked. Leave the Errors dropdown at Stop for Errors.
Step 12Click OK in the batch dialog and you’re good to go. The images will open, resize to 1000 pixels wide and save right in front of you. Try it with another action and see what else is possible!
