Photoshop - Batch Template Collage

Hello everyone,

I'm currently working on creating a photoshop template collage. My goal is to arrange images in a way that suits the design/layout, using layers or objects from multiple images. I have images named "front.jpg," "side.jpg," "back.jpg," and so on.

My plan is to set up the initial collage and then capture the shots again. Afterward, I aim to automatically replace the existing images with new ones bearing the same file names. I intend to accomplish this through a script or action that seamlessly swaps out the old images with their counterparts in a new folder. These new images will share identical file names, sizes, aspect ratios, and everything else, except they will feature shots of different things.

Is this feasible?

Use linked smart objects for each separate image (File > Place Linked).

 

You can then manually relink each image to the same named image in the new folder via the Properties panel (ensure that the resolution, PPI is the same between the old and new files, in addition to pixel width and height etc) or batch update to the new folder by using a script:

A different way is to use data driven graphics. For this method, you have to change the location of the images in the original folder where the template is stored. Also, you will need to create data sets file Creating data-driven graphics in Photoshop (adobe.com)
