Batch processing in CS2 problem

hi,

i did an action with 60 images. in the batchprocessing panel i serialized it beginning from 1 and added a new name. after it was finished i realized that the images are not numbered equal than the original TIFFs.

for example:

oldimage01 > newimage15 ....

what did i do wrong?

another question: is it possible to batchprocess for example 100 CMYK Tiffs, then during the processs – opening the control panel for histogram or lets say any panel, working in the panel manually, then continue with the batch processing after that automatically?

if yes, how could that work?

thanks

I don't have CS2, so on the first question I'm shooting in the dark based on what I have read elsewhere...
* If you invoked Batch from Bridge, there's a way in Bridge to specify a processing order other than alphabetical by file name.
* Starting with PS CS if your images are in multiple folders inside a main folder, and you specified "include all subfolders" under Source, processing order is bu alphabetical folder name, and alphabetical by file name within each folder. That processing algorithm can result in unexpected results.

re: Histogram
You might be able to engage this dialog in an action by using the "Insert Menu Item" command from the Actions Palette menu.

re: Other adjustment layers
Here's a trick I use...
* Record your action
* Add (for example) a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and change one of the settings slightly, for example Saturation = -1, then OK
* Next, double-click on the adjustment layer thumbnail in the Layers Palette to open the Hue/Sat dialog.
* Set Saturation to 0, the original value, then OK.
* In the action, click the embossed square to the left of the "Set current adjustment layer" command, which will display the dialog during each play of the action.

I hope some of this helps.

I just got a question in e-mail regarding "the trick"...
* This method works for any adjustment layer, not just Hue/Sat.
* If you know approximately what settings you want to apply, you can assign any values you like instead of making a "slight" adjustment.
* I realize one can just record the addition of the adjustment layer. The benefit of "the trick" is that it avoids clicking through the New Layer dialog with each pass of the action. I should have noted that.

Thanks, Mike, for asking.

Pure: Let us know if any of this helps, OK? Ask more questions, too, if needed.

thanks

i will try this action with the adj.-layers soon.

for the batch converting, no sorry, i didnt get it.

- i dont use any subfolders
- i dont use "bad" named original images, like 3472356_jhsidfu9_xyddfs
- didnt use Bridge, used the Photoshop CS2 Batch Converter
- my originals are named in order like: image_1.tif to image_70.tif
- my converted images are named like: ret_image_01.psd

is this maybe the problem? should i rename my originals to image_01 not 1?


another question for numbering: what do you do if you want to preserve your old image name after the batch is done? like "imageold_1.tiff" > "imageold_1.psd"?

File_2
File_3
File_4
File_5
File_6
File_7
File_8
File_9

Will process in this order...

File_12
File_13

...so renaming your originals...

...should solve the problem.
