Hi Miguel. I don't see why you couldn't do it with File > Scripts > Image processor, if you changed preferences before running it. AFAICT you can open and save psd files, and simply chose none of the other options.
I dont think you can instruct Image Processor to work on PSD/PSB only, that would do the trick but as far as I know it currently doesnt.
EDIT: meaning I currently have to look inside every folder and select PSDs/PSB and process them using the acording action:save as PSD / save as PSB. Some may already be compressed but cant actually tell wich ones.
Tipically I have a bunch of work folders like: 130709_Name_of_work
Inside threre's ussually something like "PSB_layers", "PSD_helpers", "Final_TIFF" and "RAW_chosen" and maybe some others like "Previews" or something that have JPGs.
I dont wanna convert all images (ex:JPGs,RAWS and TIFFs) to PSD, just the ones inside folder "PSD_layers" and "PSD_helpers" from all work folders, and also if possible keeping PSD as compress PSD and PSB as compress PSB.
Any work around to Image Processor that could do it?
Ty for the imput.
Had almost forgotten, I once I tried using smart collections in Bridge (that I could then use an action on) using Filename criteria containing ".psd" and ".psb" but for some reason I never actually understood it doesnt work as it doesnt find any images.

For some reason had to reset Bridge Preferences, now smart collections are working, guess I solved my own problem as now I can work on PSD or PSB only and use an action to leave it doing overnight,but sometimes it takes a little push to get you there, ty Trevor.
Found a small nagging problem, batch command from photoshop doesnt use same alphabet order as they appear in bridge, when I arrived in the morning it hadnt finished going trought all PSBs (althought I had already recouped 400GB from a 2TB disk that was almost full) so when I tried to resume didnt really know wich ones had already been processed or not.Date modified gives a hint but then I rememberred:
Is there any metada info or something alike (something one could use in smart collections filters) that could diferenciate a compress and uncompress PSD/PSB?
That would be great.
Ty in advance.
