When using the Image Processor Script to batch process raw files in Bridge or Photoshop, it’s important to know that the workflow settings in Adobe Camera Raw might have an effect on the resulting files. In this example, I selected the raw files in Bridge and choose Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor. I want the resulting images to be a maximum of 2000 pixels in the long side so I enter that value in the width and height options.
If, in Camera Raw, the Image Sizing options are disabled (or if they are set larger than 2000 pixels), then I’ll have nothing to worry about. If however, the Resize to Fit option is enabled in the Workflow Options in Camera Raw, and the Long Side dimension set lower than 2000 pixels (as is illustrated in the example below), Camera Raw will resample the image down to 1000 pixels (throwing away information) and then the Image Processor Script will up-sample it (making up information) based on the Image Processor settings.
Because resampling down and then up will lower the quality of the final image, I would be better off unchecking the Resize to Fit option in Camera Raw (or setting it to the same dimensions that I have set in the Image Processor Script).
Did you know that you can create custom keyboard shortcuts to toggle options such as Brush Pressure Controls for Size and Opacity?
To do so, choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts. Next to “Shortcuts For”, choose Tools. Then scroll down to the bottom of the list. To add a Keyboard shortcut to an item, click in the empty space to the right and tap the shortcut on the keyboard.
Note: the “K” and “N” keys are not assigned to any other tools (in Photoshop’s default Essentials workspace), so you might want to assign those first. And, the keyboard shortcuts for Tools are limited to a single key (i.e., you can’t add modifier keys like Command/Control or Option/Alt).
While you’re in this dialog, be sure to check out the other options that you can assign shortcuts to including the Mixer Brush and other options like Airbrush mode!
You can use the Info panel’s fly-out menu to choose to display the document Layer Count in the Info palette.
You can also enable Always Show Composite Color Values to simplify the readout of the Info panel by only displaying the composite or “all layers” values.
I wanted to share with you my “Advanced Photoshop CC Tips for Photography and Compositing” presentation from earlier this month at Adobe MAX. Enjoy!
When using the Transform tool to correct perspective in Camera Raw, the resulting image is often cropped in order to avoid displaying blank areas around the edges. To help retain necessary information from the original image that would otherwise be cropped use the Scale, X Offset, or Y Offset slider in the Transform panel to reposition the image within the canvas.
In the illustration below, after applying the Full Upright mode to correct perspective in Camera Raw, the image on the left was scaled to 90% using the Transform panel (revealing the transparent areas around the edges of the image). The image on the right is the result of opening the image in Photoshop, selecting the transparent areas and then filling them using the Edit > Fill with Contents set to Content-Aware.
