Using Photoshop Actions to create a Slideshow in Adobe Captivate

If you use Adobe Photoshop and haven’t tried using or creating actions, you are missing out. Actions are perhaps the single most powerful feature in Photoshop because they enable you to automate repetitive tasks by recording each step, and then playing back the entire process on a number of images and say look Ma, no hands.

In this video (00:26:08), I go over how to create an action in Photoshop and then use it to batch process a series of images for building a slideshow in Adobe Captivate. I then illustrate how to add captions to all the slides and customize the text in MS Word and finally how to add a soundtrack to the slideshow using Adobe Soundbooth. I hope you like it.
