I am currently trying to add a colour swatch (one image) as a second layer in the corner of an existing product image (another image).
Is there a way to batch process this? i have 15 separate swatches to add to 200 products.
File > Place Embedded can be recorded in an Action and that can then be Batched, used in Image Processor, …
Does each of the 200 products require the same 15 separate swatchs to be added? Or does it vary? If it varies, how do you know what goes where, and how would you factor that into your bulk processing?
All products require the same 15 separate swatches and they will all be located in the bottom right corner of the original image.
Take a look at variables and data sets.
"All products require the same 15 separate swatches and they will all be located in the bottom right corner of the original image. "
It seems doable. Now tell us whether all images to process share same dimensions and how that image with swatches look like and what are its dimensions versus required for end product? Can you post one example of finished product you are trying to achieve?
I see lots of layers with circle "swatches". Do you need all of layers in the Layers panel but only one visible? Something else? Please explain with more details.
I have idea how this deed can be done using actions but I need more details.
Idea for action.
Record action to:
Open image with swatches in Photoshop which should be 500x500px with swatches then run batch process with above action included. Test before running batch.
no there only needs to be the one colour swatch layer on each one. The multiple swatch layers was just me trying different processes
What you are describing is the route I was thinking of..
