    Hi

    I am looking to take advantage of the powerful tool of Automator to further streamline my photo editing workflow.

    Specifically I would like to streamline my batch editing process.

    Right now I divide my images up into 9 different groups for batching different sets of actions.

    My Current workflow is thus.

    In photoshop Cs3,

    File-automate-batch,

    1.I select the set.

    2.I select the action.

    3.I choose the source folder, (1 of the 9 groups of images).

    I hit ok.

    When the process is finished I do it again till I have gone through all 9 groupings.

    All files are saved to the same folder.

    I then import those images into Lightroom.

    Is there a way to get automator to do this for me?

    I've never used automator before but it seems this is what it was designed to do.

    I'd love some help.

    Cheers!

    I can't answer your question, but did you know that your user name is the same as the company Steve Wozniak started after he left Apple full time? Cloud9 wasn't available as a business name, so he used CL9 instead. He designed the first universal remote.

    Ain't I a fountain of useless info?
