Now that we have created this new folder of images and renamed them in sequence here inside the Bridge, let's take a look at how we can take these files that we have created and then convert them into another type of file using Bridge's Image Processor. So let's go ahead now and we will double-click to get into our new images folder again and here is all of these files that we just got through renaming.
And what we are going to do is we are going to take these files, we are going to convert them into a different format using the Image Processor. So how do we do that? Well, first we have is to select all of the files that we want to process. We are going to do that by using Ctrl+A to select all of these images here. Now we are going to come up here to the Tools Menu again. This time we are going to choose Photoshop from the Tools Menu and select Image Processor.
Now you can launch this directly from Photoshop, but it's much easier doing this from Bridge, simply because of the fact that you have the ability to select images here inside of Bridge rather than just selecting folders. If you are running this directly from Photoshop, you wouldn't get the benefit of selecting individual files. You only have the ability to select the entire folder of images.
So just remember that launching this from Bridge is usually the best way to go. Simply because it gives you more control over what you are doing. So what we are going to do is we are going to covert these, let's say we are going to covert these to TIFFs and we are also going to turn on LZW Compression and we are going to leave the Resize to Fit off because we just want to keep them the exact same size.
Now one of the other cool things as you could do with this is if you have an action that you wanted to run on these images, you could go ahead and do so simply by coming down here and select Run Action. In this case we will stay inside of the Default Actions here and we are going to select from the Actions inside the Default Actions folder. We are going to select here the Sepia toning just to give these images a nice sepia toned look whenever we are finished with them.
And now let's go ahead, the last thing we are going to do is we are going to turn off Save as JPEG here because we only want that TIFF conversion, we don't need the JPEG conversion as well because we already have these images saved as JPEGs. And now we are ready to run all of this on these images. So we are going to be converting to TIFF and we are also going to be running that Sepia toned action.
So I am going to click Run and all of these images are going to then open inside of Photoshop really quickly, it's going to process these files and it's going to add that Sepia Tone look to them and then save them into that folder.
So now I am just going to Alt+Tab on the PC, Command+Tab on the Mac to get back into Adobe Bridge. Now once we get back inside of the Bridge here, we are going to come down and we are going to navigate to this new folder that we have here labeled TIFF. So we will go ahead and double-click on this to select this and now all of these images are now inside of this folder, saved with that new Sepia Tone look and all saved as TIFFs and all of the metadata and everything else that we would have applied, had we entered in Copyright information and things like that, all of that would then be applied to these new files, using the Bridge and Photoshop's Image Processor here inside of Photoshop and Bridge CS3.
So by now we have an understanding of how to set up Bridge and use our Color Management Settings so that we have a better view of our color perception when we are viewing files inside of the Bridge. Should also understand how to build your own workspace in Bridge, also how to analyze and group your images together as well as sort and rate your images and add Copyright and metadata as well. We should also know by now how to use battery naming and the Image Processor to process our files to get totally different looks and interesting effects.
