Now that you can create actions in Adobe Photoshop, you can also take advantage of automation commands. This is a whole category of commands that save time on repetitive tasks, and are built into the Photoshop file menu. In this video, Richard Harrington demonstrates how to create a contact sheet in Photoshop.
- A contact sheet is a useful way…of sharing a collection of images.…Maybe you need to turn it in for licensing…or you want the client to make some markups…of which photos they want printed or further refined.…In any case, Photoshop allows you to combine several photos…into a single PDF document.…But instead of putting one image per page like a slideshow,…you could fit several images.…This is great for printing as well.…To do this, just choose File,…Automate, Contact Sheet 2.…
For those of you have used Photoshop for a long time,…there used to be a contact sheet plugin…and that was just called contact sheet.…So think of this as the sequel.…Now you could choose which images to use,…using specific files, a folder,…or what you've chosen in bridge.…I'll click the Choose button here…and navigate to my desktop,…go to my exercise files,…and I'm going to choose folder 2-4…and click OK.…
You can choose if there are several subfolders…to include them and even group those images by subfolder.…This way, you could have different pages for each subfolder.…
