I have a bulk of working PSDs and I want to convert them to JPEGs. It will take a long time to convert those PSDs to JPEGs using Photoshop by dragging each into it.

So I searched in Google and I found a software to for bulk conversion called Sage Thumbs. After converting a PSD to JPEG using this software, the file size is 530 kb, but when I use Photoshop to convert PSD to JPEG the file size is 2 MB.

The two images seem to be the same, but I can’t see any lower image quality in Sage Thumbs’s image. Should I proceed to use it to convert PSDs to JPEGs? Am I correct with my decision? Or is any other software to convert bulk PSD to JPEG without losing any image quality?

  • You should be asking yourself. "Am I okay with producing low resolution or low quality work?" The answer is hopefully NO Oct 31 '17 at 17:12
  • First off, what is the whole point of converting them? What is your end game? If you do need to convert a bunch of PSDs into JPGs, then perhaps you should looking into creating an "Action" within PS to accomplish this task.

Photoshop can automate a batch script that will process the images natively, giving you full control over the resolution and compression of the saved files.

Just flow simple steps and you get low size JPEGs no need extra software for that.

Step 1: Create/Record Action in Photoshop.

Step 2: Must save your file in "File Menu -> Save for Web" or use "Shift + Alt + Ctrl + S".

Step 3: Save for Web Popup/Dialog box set JPEG and Quality: 60.

Step 4: Then stop action recording.

Step 5: Now close all files and goto File Menu -> Automate -> Batch select.

Step 6: Batch Dialog: Select your action in "Set or Action" dropdown.

Setp 7: Source: "Folder" -> Choose your bulk "PSDs" and Select ok button (If have subfolder then also select subfolder option)

Let me know if not getting any point or flow i will send images for each steps.


Bridge is definitely the tool for this. Select your original files, right click, export to hard drive and you get a bunch of options on how to scale, resolution, etc.
