I have a frame in which different photos must shrink and fit into (frame size is absolute), and then save into different file names (preferably same name as the file that was fit into the frame). There are a total of 1400 images (with more coming in the future), so its hard to do with hand.
I tried data sets and variables. But that only lets me fit one image into the frame each time (with layer pixel replacement) . As the replacement pixel will only take a file, not iterate through a folder. Also i couldn't find a way to automate this process with actions.
So is there a way to have Photoshop iterate through the files of a folder. Fit them into the frame, then save them with the same name?
You could create an action that resizes the images, then imports your frame onto the top layer and saves out the file.
Then simply create a batch render for the folder that contains your images.
Look for tutorials in creating actions and batch rendering in Photoshop.
