Join Julieanne Kost to take a look at optimization and playback options for actions as well as saving actions as text files.
- [Instructor] I want to take a moment to mention…a few tips regarding optimization and playback…if you're batch processing a high volume of images.…The first way that we can optimize playback…is by going under the Preferences,…and then Performance.…If you're running an action that has…a number of different commands in it,…and you're trying to run that on hundreds of images,…you might want to decrease the number of history states…down to zero so that Photoshop doesn't have to…use its memory or RAM in order to hold…all of that history.…
Just don't forget to increase it when you're done…with your batch processing.…Another thing that can speed up Photoshop…is from the History panel,…use the fly-out menu and select History Options,…and you can disable this first feature…to Automatically Create First Snapshot.…Again, this is a memory issue.…If you uncheck this, then Photoshop's going to be…taking up less memory with every image that it opens.…Of course if you need that snapshot in your action,…or if you're just running a few images…
