: Adding watermark and pricing to images in a folder dynamically with Photoshop? I have a task where I need to treat multiple images in a folder, adding watermark to each image + adding a price
I have a task where I need to treat multiple images in a folder, adding watermark to each image + adding a price within a price tag.
I can apply the watermark and price tag to the images using recorded actions along with Image processor, and get a new folder with all the images with proper watermark and price tag, independent of their size.
The problem here is how I will be adding the prices, I have learned to use variables and datasets with photoshop, but the problem is:
How to use them to act on multiple images in a folder to add the
price in the specified price tag location on the image based on CSV file where I can provide the name of the image and its price? Is this even possible with photoshop?
Can I use the variables when recording the action and automate the process with the Image Processor?
P.S: I am not a graphic designer, and I do not have much experience with photoshop. I am just trying to get this task done.
You have 2 options.
Use Photoshop's Data-Driven Functions
Use InDesign to import data
Both the links above have ample information for you to get started.
For a better walkthrough of a sample method for Photoshop this link is good or InDesign this site covers it nicely.
There is also a StackOverflow question that helps cover how to import the data.
Personally I use InDesign at work. It is more robust and will be really easy to just set-up linked .psd to get your images in to work with.
