Batch Processing in Adobe Photoshop
4. Now we're done creating our Action, so we'll apply it to a bunch of images that need to be resized and rotated. So go to the File menu, and select Automate > Batch from the list.

So all you need to do now is choose a source folder (the folder containing the original images), a destination folder (the folder where the processed images will wind up) and a new file name for the processed files, assuming you want to rename them. Photoshop provides you with a wide range of options for renaming files. You can, for example, use a serial number + the original document name + the file extension (such as .psd) + the date + etc. Or you can just leave the original file names alone. (But understand that this will overwrite the original files if you save the new files into the same folder.)
Voila! That's it. Hit the OK button, and go get some coffee. You're work is done.
