If you have a lot of images that you want to quickly prepare for CD Burning and data duplication, an easy solution is to batch edit and export your photos using Photoshop.

Here's an easy tutorial to guide you through the entire process:

How to Run a Photoshop Action1. Batch editing

One of the fastest ways to edit images is with actions. Actions are batched operations that you can create or download. They run your images through pre-programmed post-processing steps, saving time and energy.

You can try out some Photoshop actions with our Free Photoshop Actions download, and read our tutorial on Batch Processing to expedite your editing process!

2. Exporting

In Photoshop, go to  File > Images > Script Processor. From here, you can select photos you want to edit and/or export, along with which folder you want the finished images to save to. You can even select other folders to edit, and save in that same spot. That way all of your photos are edited and saved in one location. 

Note: when setting up the Script Processor and changing your settings, do not reduce your image sizes. You'll want high resolution, full-size images to share with any client or family member, or to keep as a backup for yourself.

Then, burn your finished photographs to a master disc.
