Save Time With Photoshop Automated Batch

I recently had about 200 photos that needed to be optimized for the web.  That means opening the pic in Photoshop and reducing the average 3MB pic down to about 30K. It also means saving them with new file names. Photoshop can rename all the files using a convention of your choosing.

OK - so 200+ pics would take several hours to re-size one at a time. UGH, who wants to do that? Not me. With Photoshop, I was able to perform this task in about 5 minutes by doing an automated batch. Basically, all you do is take one of your pictures and re-size it the way you want and record the process. Then you can have Photoshop perform the same steps on a large batch of pictures saving tons of time.
