Easy and Quick Way to Resize Multiple Images in Photoshop

Final result of resize multiple images in Photoshop
There are many reasons why we should resize of our images. What if you have hundreds of images need to be resized in a short period of times. It might be a boring activity thinking about how long to take to open each images in photoshop, resize and save them manually. You may also think to make an action to do this, but still, it will also take time, especially if you have Landscape and portrait image format.

That’s why in this tutorial I’ll show you the easy and quick way how I resize multiple images in Photoshop.

First thing to do is make sure you make a new folder for copying your images to be resized. I made one and named it “Images”, of course you might want to name it as you like. Inside the Images folder, make 2 folders, I named them as Photograph and Image Processor. Copy and paste all images you want to resize into Photograph folder.

I think the first thing above was easy thing to do, and now let’s begin how to resize many images in photoshop at once.

Using Image Processor Scripts in Photoshop

This is one of the tools that I like in photoshop for resizing images. Image processor is one of the way to process many images including resizing and also you can save them out as PSD file.

To use image processor, go to File – Scripts – Image Processor.

How to open the Image Processor tool in Photoshop.
The image processor tool will open immediately and you can see settings I've made below.

The image above is settings i've made in image processor, you can also able to make your own settings as you need.
First step for using image processor is selecting the folder where we placed the images earlier, in this case, I select Photograph folder as shown before. You can also choose to include all sub-folders if you don’t make a new folder as I told you.

Second step is to choose where to save all images after applied image processor. If you don’t checked the “keep folder structure” box, the image processor will automatically add new folder for your image processor result. In my experience, if I don’t checked it, in my “Image Processor” folder will be added with one folder called JPEG if I saved the images as JPEG. So, in this tutorial let’s just skip it because we have made new foder earlier to save the images.

Selecting location where you want to save your processed images. You can save them in anywhere in your laptop or PC drives and folders. It is also offers you to save in the same location where the images came from (original drive or folder).
Third step is the options of what file type you want when saving them using image processor. There are 3 file types you can choose, but I’ll just save them as jpeg. You can also adjust the quality which have range from 0 to 12 as highest quality. 

Make sure to check “Resize to Fit” box and make a custom dimensions of your images. I have 13 images to be resized in this tutorial. The smallest dimension is 1920 px X 1280 px. I’ll just reduce the dimensions by subtract it with 700 px, so now I got 1220 X 580 px.

There are 3 image types (formats) available in Image Processor. You can also set your own image dimensions to get the result as you need or just simply check the Resize to Fit option.
With this dimension, the end result of image processor will not more from that, it is also because we have checked the “Resize to Fit” box. So, just let the photoshop do the work.

After all settings above apllied, then click Run to process the images.

Photoshop will automatically run to process each images according to our settings we’ve made. Then, each images will be shown with a dialogue message per images. Just click Continue or press enter on your keyboard to process other images, and so on.

Image Processor automatic run dialog box in Photoshop will be open each time for every images you'll be processed.
That's it.
Now you can check your images in the folder where you saved them. In this case, here’s the preview and result of 13 images I resized using Image Processor in Photoshop.

The image above shows that all images have been resized which also affect their dimension and size.
