With batch editing, Photoshop remembers your editing steps as an action. It is a quick and easy way to prepare images to be united under a common look or brand. There’s a variety of different edits you can apply when batch editing, including but not limited to resizing, cropping, colour correcting, straightening and converting files.
A further benefit to batch editing is that the image editing process takes place in Photoshop. Editing your images with Photoshop's capabilities means you can create unique and professional-looking photo treatments that aren’t available with other software or stock libraries and then apply that same edit to multiple photos.
Revisiting the scenario from above, imagine that you have been asked to resize and colour correct 500 images within the next two hours. If you were to go through and manually edit each image, it would be impossible to meet the deadline. Using Adobe’s batch editing capability, you only need to colour correct and resize one image. Photoshop remembers the edits you made to the original image and applies the same edits to the remaining images, saving you valuable time and ensuring you meet your deadline.
