Tina R. Posted May 18, 2016 Share Posted May 18, 2016 Hi Damien! I did try searching through the tutorials you've written as well as the boards, so I'm hoping that maybe you can help me here. I have GOT to speed up my workflow here and am wondering if I am going about this in a really roundabout kind of way and if there is a faster way, and if so...what would you suggest. I am selling digital files to a client - full resolution files, as well as the web-sized watermarked files for social media. So say I have an image, and I finished my edits in PS. This is what I've been doing to save for both files: flatten image, crop to the 11x15, unsharp mask, save as jpeg. Then Edit-step backward (to undo the unsharp mask), resize to the 2048 for FB long edge, watermark, unsharp mask, then save again for the social media files. This is taking a LONG LONG time to do each of these steps and constantly be stepping backwards because of the unsharp mask. I feel like there has to be a faster way! And then if that image is also converted into b&W...even more steps. I saw your file on batch saving, and I did that for the initial jpegs, but I'm not even sure how to quicken up the next steps. What I'm thinking is that I will still go to edit-step backwards, and just create an action that does the resize, watermark, AND unsharp mask in one swoop (can the 'step-backwards' be put in there also, I wonder?). And if I DO that...is there a way to 'batch' that same action to all of the images and not have to go through one at a time to do it? I'm sorry if this sounds confusing, it's confusing in my own mind!! I'm still kind of learning my way through PS and how to get more efficient in it once I pull my images into it. Thank you for any and all feedback/guidance you can give me!! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
