The best way to save your images for the web is using Photoshop’s handy ‘Save for Web’ feature.. this will reduce the file size but not too much of the image quality so our websites can load fast. However until the latest version of Photoshop, it has not been possible to batch record this as an action whilst taking into account that some images will be landscape and some will be portrait. As a wedding photographer, I adore batching and use it as much as I can to maintain an efficient workflow. I have recently been using Lightroom to resize my images for my website until the lovely Tigz Rice showed me this nifty trick that involves employing Photoshop CC’s rather brilliant Conditional Actions tool. Tigz has kindly recorded this tutorial for The Barn so you can set this up for yourself. It’s a little complicated but once you record this as an action, you will be able to batch resize a folder of any number of images in both formats to whatever the required size is for your own website or blog.
