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.
