Processing product shots requires a slightly different set of skills than retouching portraits. But with Photoshop and the techniques shown in this course, you can take raw photos of any product—jewelry or electronics—and turn them into ad-ready images. Follow along with Kevin Stohlmeyer, as he color corrects and retouches photos and then makes them pop off the screen with silhouettes, realistic highlights and shadows, and vibrant color. He also shares a series of Photoshop actions and other automation techniques he uses to speed up his workflow.
Another way that I can save out my images to different file types and sizes, without using Actions, is to use a process called Image Processor. That can be found under File, Scripts, and the very first item is Image Processor. I can also find it inside of Bridge under Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor. Once in here, I can use whatever open images I have inside of Photoshop, or I can select a folder to choose for mass automation. Down below, I select my location, save my images, and again, for non-destructive usage, I never want to save in the same location.
So I'm going to choose select folder. Inside of our Image Processor folder, I have a folder here that we can go through and save to, so I'm going to choose that folder. The file types that I'm allowed to save out to are JPEG, PSD, and TiFF file formats. I can also choose my quality. Maximum quality for JPEGs is 12, and I can choose specific sizes to fit to using pixel dimensions. Down below, I can also choose to run an action if I wanted to, or add copyright info at this time.
We're going to cover copyright info in a little later movie when we talk about adding metadata inside of Bridge. Once completed, I simply click run and let it process. It will go through and script out each one of the saves, and destination will show up inside of my Image Processor folder. I have a JPEG, PSD, and TIF now for each of my images.
