Autmated Photo resizing in Photoshop CS2

Posted on 2006-04-19
Last Modified: 2010-04-03
What I want to do is have an action or a script that will take a folder with images, first resize those images to 300x300, save them to a folder called gallery, then take that same photo, resize it to 150x150, save it to a folder called Thumbnails, add a '_thm' to the end of the name. I want it to do that with all of the photos within the folder. Thanks in advance, Joe.

    Try just creating an action. Then go to File>Automate>Batch. Choose the Source folder and Destination and Name.

    Thats the step I was missing. I forgot how to run the action on a folder. Thanks.
