Personally, I use an Action combined with the Batch script. The steps in my Action are like this:
- Place Embedded
- Transform (size)
- Move to correct position with Move tool
- Flatten Image
- Convert to sRGB
- Save As (JPEG; quality 10, etc)
- Close (Save: no)
I actually created one Action for horizontally oriented photos and one for vertically oriented. The resize and transform steps are different on each. Most notably, the resize step; I enter the desired short side's dimension for both (height for horizontal and width for vertical), and the long size is automatically filled in.
Last, create a third Action (the one you will choose in the Batch script) containing only an if/else step. Go to the Action panel's menu and choose "Insert Conditional." Set it like this: If image is horizontal: play [horizontal Action]. Else, play: [vertical Action]
Then I have Batch set up like this:
I've been planning to put together a video tutorial of this, but haven't had the chance yet. Anyway, hope this helps!
Yeah I figured there was some action oriented thing to do here but I was hoping for something out of the box. Is there a way to export the elements script and import into CC. It already exists and worked really well for me. I don't want to recreate it. Is that script stored as a file in the elements directory? can I copy that into the CC files and make it available to use?
If you have an action that can watermark your image. It would be easy to do using the plug script image processor pro that can be downloaded and installed for the web.
My crafting actions package has a sample action. That can watermark any size image.
That I'm not sure of. You could ask over in the Photoshop Elements forum to see if the script/plugin is internal or not.
Do look into the the add on I linked to in my first post. You can use it for free if you don't need the extra features in the paid version. I've used the free version and it worked quite well.
Thx Benjamin for mentioning my Panel Watermark CC
I'm constantly working on it and provide regularly updates.
Thank you, Thomas, for creating a very useful plugin...And even providing a basic free version!
