  1. Hi, I have used this method in your tutorial for days, and only recently Photoshop keeps closing on its own after 308 photos. Is there an error with the software, or is there a setting I'm missing that allows me to process over 13,000 photos? Each time it crashes/closes after processing specifically 308 photos, which is annoying and time consuming as it already is. Hoping you have some ideas? Many thanks

  2. I don't understand why this is necessary. In my old Photoshop Elements 10, it was simple and straightforward! Right in the File menu, there was an option: "Process Multiple Files." Click on it, and away you go. Also, the option was far clearer and more capable--you could for example convert images to PNG. In my "current" edition of "full-version" Photoshop CC 2021, you cannot convert to PNG (you can only convert to JPEG). Adobe continues to butcher its own software and hence betray its customers. I have no faith nor regard for them now.

    1. Unfortunately, I don't think that's possible. Try doing it from File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy)... it might save it in a relative path when you're recording the action.

  3. Wow! have you done this in Photoshop? If so its really amazing work.I am working in editing task but not yet good enough like you. Good job indeed.

  4. Why is this so complicated? Why can't you just open a bunch of files in Photoshop and perform the same action on all of them? I don't have time to wrap my head around all this. PS has been around for decades, and they still don't have a simple command for this?

  5. Does this process same as like Photoshop action tool? In order to run the Batch processing we must have create the action first. Anyway thank you for the article.

  6. Wow! great It is undoubtedly beneficial to many. Basically, those who use only “Lightroom”, making such things, they will get an inspiration for using Photoshop.

  7. Really it is a great helpful post. It is undoubtedly beneficial to many. Basically, those who use only "Lightroom", making such things, they will get an inspiration for using Photoshop.
