Discover actions and automation options in Adobe Photoshop and Bridge to speed up your workflow.
- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington and welcome to this course on automating Photoshop. Now, automation is simply the process of having Photoshop do several repetitive tasks. This can include things like memorizing what you do on one image so you can play it back on another, or taking boring tasks like resizing images, or getting them converted between one file type to another, and letting the computer do all the work for you. Now, automation itself can take on several different techniques. Photoshop includes actions, which is just another word for a macro, and this allows you to record steps and play it back.
It also includes the ability to use built-in commands that have been designed to take production-oriented tasks, like making a contact sheet or a gallery, and speed things up. Plus, you could take advantage of scripts. In this course, you're going to learn things that are going to help users of all levels. So, whether you're just getting started, or you're a Photoshop master, I'll help you save time. We'll explore ways of using the built-in technology that's ready to go and creating some of your own actions so you can speed things up.
We've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's get started.
