Question Photoshop batch soft edge effect

Hello

I would like to create a soft edge effect (a white border that fades into the image) using photoshop for a batch of photos.

Can anyone tell me how to create this myself, or where to find a cheap or free pre-made photoshop plugin that will allow me to do this? Ideally something I can run on a batch of photographs rather than having to open them individually.

If you know of a way without Photoshop I would be interested in that too.

Thank you for reading.

Re: Photoshop batch soft edge effect

Galen, welcome to RetouchPro. You can create / record a tiny action:
-Select All
- Select > Modify > Border
- Select > Modify > Feather
- Set your foreground color swatch to white and hit Ctrl+Backspace to fill it with white or use the fill command.
Now you are finished. Save the action and then do File > Automate > Batch. You just specifiy the folder containing all of you images and Photoshop will apply the specified action to all the photos in that folder.
Regards, Murray
