After having processed our files using Adobe Camera Raw, and then after having written and recorded that action, now here what I want to do is batch process one or more photographs, and this is really important when it comes to working with RAW files, because we want to work with all of these files at once. So we want to resize and sharpen and save those to this folder. So here we'll navigate to the Tools pulldown menu and then select Photoshop and then choose Batch. This will open up the Batch dialog. Here we're going to play from the Set > Chris Orwig-actions, the action which resizes, sharpens and saves and closes the file.
Next, you need to make sure to turn Suppress File Open Options Dialogs. Otherwise, if you have a RAW file or a JPEG that's been processed in Camera Raw, it will open up Camera Raw and it will stop the overall action. You will have to do something each time with every image. In other words, it just won't work. In this workflow, because we're using Camera Raw, make sure that checkbox is turned on. We don't need to determine a Destination, because we recorded that in the action, and so finally we just click OK.
What will happen is Photoshop will open this image, it will skip Camera Raw, and then it will go through the various steps that you can see here inside of our action; but in this case, just this one image. Yet, if we had multiple images, it would go through all of those. Next, we'll go to File, and here we'll go back to Bridge by selecting Browse in Bridge. Here inside of this folder, I'll change my thumbnail size so that we can see we now have these two PSD files, which have been both resized and sharpened and then saved to this folder by way of the action which we recorded in Photoshop.
