How to take a grayscale image, & automate the matc
In Photoshop CS3, does anyone know how to use the match color tool to automatically convert one grayscale image into multiple output images based on a collection of color swatches? Or a better process to achieve this automated?
I have all the swatches in psd files in one directory. I can do them one-by-one but I was wondering if there was a way to automate this process and have it spit out and save the different images automatically based on the saved swatch colors.
Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

Foberto, welcome to Retouch Pro. If I understand correctly waht you are trying to do, you should be able to do that by recording a small Action. You would have all of the Color Swatches in one folder. The sequence would be:
OPen a color swatch; Open your grayscale image; Selct the whole grayscale image; copy and paste it on top of the color swatch; Match Color; Flatten the file; save with a new file name; Close both images; Stop Recording
After you create your Action, you can run it by doing a File>Automate>Batch and just fill in the info (source folder, destination folder, Action name, etc).
There is a good description how actions work in the PSCS3 User Guide. There are also lots of tutorials available on the web.
