I am working on time-lapse taking photos every day at a specific location for the next 30 days.

Although I am doing my best to centre the photos always in the same place, sometimes various photos will need to be aligned.

I will create the final time-lapse with a specific software, however, I still would like to align all the photos first with photoshop.

Is there a way to do the alignment and then export back every single aligned photo?

  • And what makes this a graphic design question? – Lucian Sep 14 '18 at 15:22
  • It does not matter what you do with your images in the end, I believe that the question of how to align and export images should serve even graphic design working with multiple images. Lucian you can do two things: criticizing and ignoring my request for help, or simply help – Fabrizio Sep 14 '18 at 15:42
  • Criticizing (including down and close votes) are allowed when a question is offtopic, unclear or broad: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic. Editing a timelapse is a specific photography technical question and barely related to graphic design. You can also align cars in a parking lot but that's not called graphic design. – Lucian Sep 14 '18 at 15:53
  • What exactly is the problem you're facing? Do you know how to import photos to Photoshop, align and export files? You can probably align manually, 30 photos is not so much. – Luciano Sep 14 '18 at 16:23
  • You have to do it manually as Luciano said. The program doesn't know what you want it to align. – LeoNas Sep 14 '18 at 16:28

You can create an action for this task. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-actions.html

It'd simply create the document using "File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack" to fetch the photos as individual layers.

Then, select all layers and "Edit > Auto-Align Layers".

And export all the layers using "File > Export > Layers to Files..."
