Join Julieanne Kost to discover how to use multiple actions to paste multiple images into a template, and then quickly resize and distribute them with a second action.
- [Instructor] Sometimes it takes more than one action…in order to complete all of the steps that you want to do.…In this example, I have a template file…and I want to place nine different photographs,…one in each of the squares.…So I'm going to create one action…that will place all the files using the batch command…and then a second action that will distribute them all.…So on the actions panel,…I'll click on the folder icon in order to create a new set…and I'll call this place and distribute.…
Then we'll start recording our first action.…I'll click on the action icon…and I'll call this place images.…I'll click Record and then we need to open our first image…so I'll close Command + O to open.…I'll navigate to the 04 place and distribute folder,…select the first image and click Open.…I need to crop this image so I'll tap the C key…and while I want to crop it square,…I actually need to put in the width, height and resolution…so I can select any of the presets here…and then type in four inches tab four inches tab 300…
