Hello All. I've got another random question. I have multiple color images I want to covert into grayscale. Is there a quick way to convert all of them at once instead of doing them one-by-one? (image>mode>grayscale)?

Thanks in advance! :)

record a script, although, it's not called a script, while you run one file. save it.
run the rest...bam...done.

look for 'record' in the help menu..

Just thought I'd mention that image>mode>grayscale is a very crap way of making a black and white image. Better would be to use the Chanel Mixer.

Or the patented DogboneTechnique©, you can find a psd action for it here in post #6 (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=266655)
