I have a bunch of pictures where I need to resize each of them so that the largest dimension is 900 and save them to a folder. How might I go about writing a script to do this so that I don't have to do each one individually? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Open one of the images that you want to resize and save.

Click on Window, Actions to open the Actions palette.

Click the "Create new action" icon at the bottom.

Name your new action and choose an F-key.

Click Record.

Now Photoshop is recording EVERYTHING you do. So don't do anything that is unique to this image...

Resize it to the dimensions you want EVERY image to be.

Then click the Stop button.

You now have a new Action in the palette - so anytime you want to perform this resizing, you just hit the F-key.

Now that you have created the action, create a new temp folder, go to edit>automate>batch process. You will ask for the source folder (pics folder) and destination folder (the temp folder you created) and what action you want to run. This will run the action you created on the entire folder contents all at once.

Thank you all for your advice!!!
