Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Streamlining photo scans with a hidden Photoshop command, part of Photo Tools Weekly (2015).
- Hi, I'm Jan Kabili, welcome to Photo Tools Weekly.…If you've been putting off scanning your old snapshots…into digital form because you just can't face…scanning each photo one by one,…I think you'll appreciate the time-saving…Photoshop technique I'll share with you this episode.…It's a one-click trick for separating and cleaning up…scans of multiple photos.…The beauty of this technique is that…you can scan more than one photo at a time.…And you can just throw multiple snapshots…on a scanner bed any old which way,…without worrying about lining them up…perfectly on the scanner.…
Scan them all as a single document,…and then open that multi-image document…into Photoshop, as I've done here.…Now I'll go up to the file menu,…I'll go down the automate and over…to crop & straighten photos.…This is a command that's been in Photoshop for a long time,…but it's so well hidden in the automate menu…that you may never have noticed it.…As soon as I choose crop & straighten photos,…Photoshop goes about figuring out the boundaries…
