Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating conditional actions, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
One of the great new features in Photoshop 13.1 is conditional actions, so the idea is…you can perform one set of operations under one circumstance and another set of operations under a different circumstance.…So here I am looking at the bunch of image treatments in Bridge which is a companion…program in Photoshop and imagine that I want to do is I want to batch process these images,…so I convert them all flat CMYK files that have no alpha channels, because alpha channels…can produce problems sometimes when you bring images into other applications.…
Now I just happen to know that all the images of the guy down here don't have alpha channels…and all those associated with the women at top do have alpha channels.…So I need to create different actions depending on which is which and then have Photoshop…determines which action to play. So here is how it works.…I will start off by double-clicking on this guy here in order to open him up in Photoshop…and then I'll bring my Actions panel by going to Window menu and choosing the Actions command,…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
