writing an action
on Aug 3, 2009 at 5:29:59 pm

Trying to write an action that will open all images in a folder, adjust auto color, convert rgb to cmyk, save, close and go on to the next image.

I can get it to adjust auto color, convert to cmyk and save. Can't seem to figure out how to automatically do all of the pics. that are open.

Any ideas?

There are a few ways you can do this, if you need to run your action on all the images in one folder.

Once you have finished creating your action and hit stop recording go to: File > Batch > Automate

This brings up the batch dialogue box. Select the Set and Action you want to play, then the source folder for your images.

Depending on how your colour management is set up, you should tick the two "suppress' options. Providing you have already setup a save in your action that you are happy with, leave the "destination" section clear. It is worth running a test on a couple of images before committing the whole folder.

I hope this helps!
