i have a folder with many really large images, streight off the digital camera. Is there any way to shrink all of the images without opening and resizing each one? Because that would take a lot of time... Thanks in advance!

photoshop's action: photo editing help!
As per photoshop's theme, this function is overly complicated. I recorded the action, and set all the directories, but when it goes to resize my pictures, it hangs on the JPEG options and wants me to push OK, thus negating the AUTOMATED part. I want it to just go 'ok' and keep going. I have searched, and read, and searched, and i cant find the answer. 

Someone please help....
Funnily enough I was having problems with this last night.....I only really use the resize function when I am having to email photos to family members and so on...so it doesn't happen very often....I think I will just use the Canon Professional software instead - it does it very easily indeed...

Photo editing software for to alter your images?
What are the 3 most frequently used procedures you use editing software for to alter your images? 
If you use less than 3 most of the time then just list the frequent ones. 
It may get out of control if I ask why, but if there is a real valuable point then list it too 
Resizing, curves, and sharpening. Resizing may be too obvious, so I'll throw in straightening the horizon and cropping. 

I use curves for my tonal adjustments, because it gives the most control and is the least destructive to the image, but using levels is a decent way to do it before one learns about curves. Curves are a bit tricky at first. Brightness and contrast are bad ways of doing it for reasons too complicated to get into, but unfortunately they're intuitive so some people get stuck with those functions. 

Sharpening is one that almost every image needs. My sharpening process is very complicated and involves sharpening the Lab Lightness channel on a duplicate layer, converting to RGB, then splitting the sharpened layer into light and dark halves and using selective masking. I automate it with a function key / action, though, so it's pretty quick. 

I tend not to do very much color modification, because the basic RAW adjustments usually get the image where it needs to be. I never ever touch the saturation dial. If an image seems undersaturated I address it by steepening the A and B channel curves in LAB mode -- also less destructive than using saturation. I use that same LAB curves function to deal with color casts that didn't quite get taken care of in RAW. 

That's about it. I don't do much regional editing, but one thing I'll occasionally do is go to the Lightness channel and do some dodging and burning if the image needs some lightening or darkening of a specific area. I almost never use things like the clone tool, patch tool, or healing brush, but I will use the spot healing brush if there's visible dust on the sensor. I'll usually noise reduce for shots taken at ISO 400+. I use Noiseware, again applied to the Lightness channel.
