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 crop and straighten photos in Photoshop.
- Another option in the Automate menu…is well-suited if you need to do scans.…Photoshop offers a Crop and Straighten command,…which can take scanned photos and quickly pull…them apart and straighten them.…In other words, you can load up your scanner…with as many photos that fit, just leave…a small gap between each of the images.…Then, when you run File-Automate,…it can pull those apart into a separate document.…Here's how.…You can see here that I've got two sets of scans.…
All I did was load up the scanner…and left a little space in between.…And while normally I try to be pretty precise,…they're not exactly even.…But Photoshop can deal with this.…So either from the File-Open menu or Bridge,…select both images and bring them in.…Now, make sure you've got the Move tool selected,…don't bother cropping or doing any changes there.…And you can choose File, Automate,…Crop and Straighten Photos.…
It'll use edge detection and pull each one out…into its own document, like you see here.…Now depending upon the orientation,…you might have to do something as simple…
