Using the Image Processor Script to Process Raw Files in Bridge or Photoshop

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.

Having the Resize to Fit option enabled might produce unexpected results.

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).

Custom Keyboard Shortcuts for Painting Tools in Photoshop CC

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!

Photoshop Layer Count and Composite Layer Values

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.

In the default state, photoshop displays two sets of numeric values for tracking changes. Enabling

In Photoshop’s default state (the screenshot on the left), the Info panel displays two sets of values for tracking changes made to an image. Enabling “Always Show Composite Color Values” simplifies the panel and only displays the composite values (the screenshot on the right).
