Batch Save for Web JPGs in Photoshop

We often take pictures with our smart phones which may save photos at very high resolutions resulting in large file sizes. What if we want to quickly resize and compress these images for uploading to a website or sharing via email. One quick was is to use Photoshops Image Processor Automation Script.

File > Script > Image Processor

You’ll then see a dialog where you

  1. select a folder containing the large images
  2. select a location to save the processed images
  3. check a file type (JPG) and optionally resize the image to fit within a specified width and height

Then, just click the Run button and Photoshop will do the work.
