File browser Use the File Browser to quickly organize and retrieve images from your hard drive, external drives, CDs, and disks directly. Rotate images before opening them, batch rename, sort files, and manage image folders—all within the File Browser. The File Browser also displays image metatada, such as date created, date modified, and Exchangeable Image File (EXIF) information from digital cameras. See "Using the File Browser (Photoshop)" on page 78.
Actions Automate routine tasks such as batch processing by recording the steps as an action. Then simply click a button in the Actions palette to apply the action to other projects. For everyday jobs, turn the action into a droplet. Save the droplet on your desktop so that you can simply drag-and-drop to apply the action to individual files or folders of images. See "About actions" on page 484 and "Using droplets" on page 496.
Metadata support Repurpose, archive, or automate files in a workflow using XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) format to embed metadata into a document. You can also ensure that image information—such as caption, credits, and copyright—travel with the file. See "Adding file information (Photoshop)" on page 459.
