Your description of what you want to do is not easy to understand many details seem to be missing which make what you what you want to do very vague
Here is the process i Followed...
-> Opened Photoshop CS6
-> Went to Actions -> Create New Action -> Record
-> Then CTRL + O to open my PSD File (Template.psd)
-> Then CTRL + O again to open JPEG Image File
-> Then CTRL A + CTRL C To Copy the image
-> Now CTRL + Tab to go to my PSD File (Which i already opened) and then pasted CTRL + V
-> Now created clipping mask by pressing ALT + CTRL + G
-> Now saved the file into PNG Format by pressing CTRL + Shift + S
-> Now deleted the copied Image from my PSD
-> Stopped Recording
-> Now went to File -> Automate -> Batch
-> Selected Source Folder, Selected Destination Folder, Gave extension, 2 Digit Serial Number and pressed OK.
-> I have 5 Different Images in my Demo Folder (Which i hav given as Source)
-> The final Output after running the batch was... 5 images were created with 5 names, but all the 5 images are of the same "Image" i.e 1st image design was clipping masked as 5 designs...
remaining 4 images didnt got the clipping mask.
I will send the screenshot of the same if u can provide ur Email ID Also...
plz Help out to make it Right...
You may be able to create an action that opens the psd file and you paste in the image file the batch process opened for processing. However, I do not know how you would automate the positioning and masking of each image pasted in.
You may want to look at my Photoshop Photo Collage Toolkit. It can handle PSD templates with up the 53 images. The number of Alpha channels Photoshop supports. There are scripts that automate the population of template psd files.
Photo Collage Toolkit
Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this here is a video showing a 5 image collage PSD template being populated with images
The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.
There are fifteen scripts in this package they provide the following functions:
One of the problems why you are getting always exactly the same image clipped is probably because you have recorded in first two steps (open steps) which exactly file and image to open and Photoshop is always opening same template and the same image.
You can try to record action without a first open step, so keep template open in Photoshop. Record other steps with additional step to close document after copying image. Here are the steps which you should record (I have tested and I get batch to work):
Open (image, not template. Template should be already open in Photoshop before running Batch)
Create clipping mask
Delete current layer
In the Batch dialog check Override Action Open commands. I will guess that you have checked and Override Action Save As Commands.
Update: there are a couple of assumptions done which may lead to action fail: step Copy which comes after Set Selection (Select All) will always work when only Background layer/single layer is present in the file, otherwise Copy Merged will do the job. Another assumption is that proper layer in the Layers panel is selected before running Batch (the layer above which you want to paste copied image). Another option that will work is that none of layers is selected but layer to which you want to clip copied and pasted image is on top of the layer's stack.
Awesome you are, Thank You Very Much...
