I am working on a Mac 10.3 Media 100 Photoshop CS2
A client brought me a disc with 110 photos that had been scanned. They all need to be re-cropped and then saved as jpeg files to be brought into my editing system. What would be the most efficient way to accomplish this? Right now I am thinking the long way, crop each image, and copy it, open a new file with NTSC dv 720X480, then Paste the cropped image. Then I have to Transform to Scale to get it to fit with a black background. last save to a folder to be brought in to my NLE system. Any ideas on a better way will be appreciated.
You can automate this as batch commands in Photoshop. Look under the "Actions" palette. Try recording the key sequence you are doing, and apply this sequence to another image to make sure it works as expected.
Then you could apply this action across the whole image library.
