Photoshop Tip of the Day

So I needed to load up around 50 logo images and resize them into a 120×70 pixel sized box. This sounded like a headache, but what I did is stopped and asked google how to accomplish this task in photoshop. What I resulted with was the find of the evening.

But the problem with that is it just loads all the images up as layers, not resizing them down to a certain size and does not align them and center them…

So for that I discovered a javascript action…

That basically has the code so you can make your own .JSX file for an action script that you place in your scripts folder. And if you can open up a text editor you can basically change the final resize size in two seconds and resave the file.

OK lets say you edited your JSX file you added it to your scripts folder. Next step…
Turn on photoshop open 15 different images. click on windows at the top and drop down and select actions. Make a new action name, start recording. go to File click on scripts load up your new Script and upon completion of the script completing hit stop ( make it a f4 command macro and you can resize all of your images mindlessly. )

Hope this helps someone out! You will still have to review a few of the images to make sure that their centered manually for the images that have strange backgrounds.
