How To Batch Resize Images and Save For Web Use Using Photoshop

Read Time: 2 minutes

I was asked to upload over 1000 images, each image approximately 3768 pixels wide and upwards, mostly over 3MB in size. Instead of spending time resizing and saving each image individually, I found a quick solution to batch resize images to scale and then optimise for web use.

Here’s a look at the many additional options available after installing CS6/CC Adobe Photoshop Panels & Actions:

Let’s Get Started

  1. Make sure you have Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge closed before moving on.
  2. Download CS6/CC Adobe Photoshop Panels & Actions and unzip the contents to a preferred location of your choice.
  3. Open Adobe Extension Manager with administrative privileges.
  4. Click on the ‘install’ button located at the top of the program, then navigate to the unzipped folder.
  5. Select the file named Services_Installer_2.3.1.zxp, then follow the instructions to install the script.
  6. Open up Photoshop, then navigate to the folder containing the images you’d like to resize and select them all.
  7. Go to File > Automate > Image Processor Pro.
  8. Make your selections, then click Run.

It’s that simple, enjoy!
