I've run into a problem with batch processing. I have a file with only a folder full of adjustment layers in it (I did not create the adjustment layers, someone else did), and I need to apply those adjustment layers to about a hundred images. I'm trying to make a photoshop action to do this, but I can't find a way to import the adjustment layers in a way that batch processing will accept.
The things I've tried so far:
- I used place to import the .psd file that the adjustment layers is in, but then the adjustment layers don't apply to my image. Linked and embedded give the same (lack of) result.
- I kept the .psd with the adjustment layers open, and had the action switch to that file, duplicate the layer using right-click and "duplicate layer". I tried to use the action for batch but it threw an error by the second image.
- Same as the last attempt, but instead of right clicking and using "duplicate layer", I dragged the folder from one file to another. The action didn't recognize that a duplication happened and the batch attempt spat out the same images without any of the adjustment layers.
So, does anyone know if there is a way to make this happen? I think I need to find a way to duplicate layers from one file to another without having the original file open. Any help is appreciated.
