I have just downloaded the
/uploads/ folder, from a website I am working on. This
/uploads/ folder, containing all uploaded images.
There are over 5,000 images, each not having been optimised for the web. As such, I would like to use Photoshop to perform the following optimisations:
- Reduce Image Size;
- Change File Format to JPEG;
- Select 'Save for Web'.
I would like to automate this process than manually perform each Action. I have tried the Automate > Batch approach. Whilst this does perform the necessary actions, it does select the 'Low' option for image quality. Is there anyway I could perform this Batch Action but with changing the 'Low' option to 'High'?
After some guidance, I have tried the below steps. Unfortunately, I still cannot seem to achieve the results I am looking for ...
New Actionand name it accordingly;
- Select the
- I then proceed to select
Open ...then select the required image;
- I then head to
File > Save for web;
- After I have made my modifications, I then select
Save for webpop up window and save accordingly;
- I then close the image. When I close the image, I do not select the 'Save' feature since I have already Saved, when saving for web;
- I then select
- I then head to
Automate > Batchand enter the following settings:
I just cannot seem to get the images to save within the Destination Folder. I have played around with the Settings. For example: Selecting and Deselecting the
Override Action "Save As" Commands but the closest I can get is the images are simply being saved to the Desktop rather than the Destination Folder.
I have managed to get the images to save within the Destination Folder. The way I achieved this, was that I figured that when you Save for Web, you need to select
Save and then
Cancel when the save box appears. Otherwise, the Action will save to that destination, regardless of what you enter into the Batch Settings. That said, however, this approach triggers the following settings after each image:
I selected the
Override Action "Save As" Commands but this just resulted in the images not being saved at all.
How can I include this within the Automation, so that I do not need to select the relevant options after each image?
