Photoshop Automator Actions v. 5.0.1

0 comments

Mac OS X’s Automator provides a friendly, flowchart-like front end for the incredibly powerful AppleScript capability built into most applications and the Mac OS itself. Ben Long has created a set of 95 Automator Actions that use Photoshop CS4 and CS5 to change images dropped into a folder. (There are also versions for Photoshop CS2–CS3.) The basic collection, which includes 30 actions, is free. The extended collection costs $20. Some of our favorites are:

Contact Sheet
Change Mode
Add Watermark
Flatten Document
De-Interlace
Auto Levels
Change Resolution
Reduce Noise
Dust and Scratches
Shadow/Highlight
Smart Sharpen
Assign Color Profile
Resize Image
Rename from EXIF
Save as TIFF
Save as JPEG
Copy IPTC to Spotlight

The package also includes sample workflows and a 79-page manual describing the actions and an introduction to using Automator. You can download the actions and read all about them at www.completedigitalphotography.com/?p=339
