Web Resize & Sharpen Action for Photoshop

Do you want an easier and faster way to resize your images for the web?

This photoshop web resize and sharpen action set has been a favourite action set of mine for ages now and I still use it for each and every image that I upload to the web.
It provides both high-pass and lab sharpening methods.

To download, simply "right-click" this link and save the target file:

To install, place the file in Photoshop's Action folder and restart Photoshop.  As with any Photoshop image modification, I can't stress enough the need to WORK ON A DUPLICATE FILE and BACKUP THE ORIGINAL FILE AND STORE SAFELY before making any alterations.

If you have any questions about the use of this action, please feel free to use the comments section below.

  1. Hey Rosty Great post!!! I have been looking for a batch resize for the web but I dont need the sharpening. Is there a way for me to remove that part... I work with quite a few photographers and this would help with the proofing process

  2. Click the arrow beside the action to expand it. Here you will see the individual steps involved and you can uncheck or delete (drag to rubbish bin) what you dont need.

    I would recommend making a copy of the original action first however. To do this, simply drag the action to the square icon beside the rubbish bin in the action pallete.

  3. Great actions! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great actions! Thanks for sharing!

  5. This is awesome, but it doesn't really account for if you want images not square. Also, it doesn't change the file resolution to 72dpi which is standard for web images

    1. "doesn't really account for if you want images not square" - Yes it does. You simply constrain the image to a particular pixel size for one side or the other.

      "it doesn't change the file resolution to 72dpi" - It doesn't need to, as browsers will automatically display the image at 72ppi.
