batch converting picture files
This trick is very useful to batch convert picture files from one image file format to another, for example from .psd to .jpg
Starting in Photoshop:
File > Open
Select all the files you want to convert by holding Ctrl (or control on a mac) and selecting each file you want to open.
Go to Actions (icon looks like a play button)
Create New Action
Name your action (Ex. Convert to jpg)
The action is now recording
Save the file you are currently working on as a .jpg.
“Stop” to stop recording.
After closing this:
File > Automate > Batch
Select settings then OK.
