Photoshop CS6 batch processing multiple images ready for the web

In this tutorial we will be showing you how to use batch processing to re-size an entire folder full of images you want to prepare for deployment on your web page. Rather than editing each photo individually, with one simple action we will change them all to 72ppi and re-size them all to suit your website. We all know we don’t want great big picture consuming a few meg of bandwidth each being re-sized by the browser. This is very bandwidth heavy so normally we would use Photoshop or Fireworks to re-size them etc. but when you are processing dozens or even hundreds at a time this can be quite tedious. This is where batch processing comes in. For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.
