Chuck Beams Batch Actions for Elements is a batch action set that can be used to replace the simple file-type converters with a more useful batch-conversion set -- temporarily or permanently. The batch set is named for Chuck, who suggested several of the actions included there.

The names of the batch actions are the description (as in the list below), followed by the format the images will save in (JPEG High, JPEG Maximum and TIFF). Installing is as easy as copying the download file into Elements, but PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS that come with the file. These replace the current batch actions, but you can easily switch between the sets. All of the following are included for mac and pc versions of Chuck's Batch Actions:
