You can automate most tasks in Photoshop by using actions. You can record them, enter them by hand or download others from the internet. They can be fully automated with predefined values or you can design them to ask for settings when they run. Short tutorial I don't think you can automate tasks in Lightroom and I don't have any experience with other ...

If you need to do photo editing, such as extraction, compositing, retouching, etc. you still need a photo editor like Photoshop. Lightroom is more an image management application, that has some limited edition capability but not enough for things like object extraction.

LZ and zip are related and are lossless compression methods, whereas JPEG is designed to throw away pixel data to arrive at smaller sizes. It is unclear to me whether DNG ...

Am i correct that you want to edit jpeg images in Lightroom which already contain resolution information? In this case afaik you have to set the resolution for each file as you already stated in your question. Lightroom is designed to manage and edit photos from digital cameras which do not have inherent resolution information (it would not make sense). ...

In addition to Olle Sjögren's great suggestion (Actions are brilliant for this kind of thing), OS X's Automator can be used. It's free, and already in your Applications folder if you're a Mac user. And... if you're willing to type some stuff into Terminal/CLI, ImageMagick can batch process images to do pretty much anything. Your options are: Actions ...
