Automate crop and straighten - is this available in Photoshop Elements 2021?

If not which product do I need to purchase?

 

Have 1000's of old postcards to scan in to sell on EBay which are all the same size. Ideally would also like to resize to 600 pixels across and save for web at 'fine' setting. Anything to help automate the process would be wonderful.

Thanks

David

Hi

Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted to PS Elements.

That's not an option in PSE.   I bought "Scan Speeder" to scan in hundreds of post cards---- I can scan three at a time- it separates them into their own files, it does not "Auto straighten" but it's easy to to.  Lots of variables to set up. 

I've found that I generally have to "despeckle" the post card scans- in particular with photo postcards from the 60's.

There is also the Straighten Tool where you draw out a line along an area that should be level.

You can resize open images or folders of images using File>Process Multiple Files.

Unfortunately, that doesn't include Save for Web and photoshop elements doesn't ship with the ability to record/batch process actions, however, you might be able to automate the task using Elements+.

Hi Jeff

I found the 'Divide Scanned Photos' on my Photoshop Elements 9 but it does not work. All it does is make a copy of the file so you have two to work on. I suspect that this is all it is meant to do and so will be the same on PSP Elements 21. To be honest I am happy to pay for the full Photoshop if it will do everything.

 

Thanks for your answer.

Adobe has several subscription plans for Photoshop. The least expensive is an annual plan, paid at 9.99 per month. You can get a free 7-day trial to make sure it works first.

Yes the full photoshop subscription will do everything you want, where as photoshop elements will probably do what you want but not without some third party addons.
