Adobe Bridge is a digital asset management piece of software that comes along with creative cloud or creative suite that allows you to preview and add metadata and keywords to existing files. In this case I'm going to utilize this to add my image size to all of these images at the same time. To access the batch automation features, I simply go to Tools>Photoshop>Batch. If I don't want to use Bridge and I want to access through Adobe Photoshop, you can access this through File>Automate>Batch and it'll get you to the same location.
Once inside the Batch feature, I'm first going to choose my action from my personal set in the appropriate action. Then, I'm going to choose the source from where my files are located. When I open through Bridge, it's actually going to use the window that I have currently open to access all those files. If I'm working through Photoshop, I'll have to designate the folder where the files are originally located. Then, I'll choose my destination. By default, it's going to be set to none. I have two options, Save and Close, or Folder. I definitely don't want to use Save and Close, because again, working non destructively, I want to keep my originals intact as long as possible.
This is going to be my final export out to my out box. Saving and closing will overwrite my working files, so I'm going to choose Folder. Inside of our exercise files, I have a folder called Resized Images, and that's the folder that we're going to use as our destination. I'll simply click Choose to select that folder. An option down below under Choose allows me to override save as commands. So, as I'm going through, if I did record a Save As command, the current destination from that Save command is where my file will end up. Overwriting this will allow me to go to the folder and overwrite any recorded Save commands that I have.
After I have this set up, I simply need to just hit OK and it's going to go through and batch run my images. Now, I don't have to stay here and watch this. This is something that I can set and just walk away and let it automatically run. Once completed, it's a good idea to just double check your folder and make sure that your resized images showed up in the right location. And there they are. If I double click to open. Double checking my image size I can see that it's 600 pixels wide, 72 pixels per inch and the resample is appropriately set to Bicubic Sharper.
