Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Crop and straighten photos, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Automation.
If you're working with traditionally printed images or some traditional…media formats, you may still need to use a scanner.…After all, not all photos are digital.…Many exist in analog form and need to be converted into…a digital image, so it can be manipulated with Photo Shop.…Well, here's the good news, you don't have to load them one at a time.…Simply take your scanner and load it up…with as many photos that fit on the surface.…You could then invoke the scan command and load in…a single image, like the ones I'm about to show you.…
