Batch process comes particularly in handy if you’ve got a large folder of photos from your latest vacation, photoshoot, or images you’re ready to edit for a blog post. Whether you want to crop them in the same orientation, resize them to a specific dimension, sharpen them at the same rate, or add the same photo filter. The sky’s the limit with batch processing!

Immediately after you upload your photos as a batch, you’ll notice specific tools from our Photo Editor listed on the left. These are your quick access options. You can click on them one by one to edit your photos using each tool, or click the ‘x’ next to any tool to delete it from your quick menu.

If you’d rather crop photos in freeform mode, you can choose the Freeform option from the Crop dropdown menu. This way, you can crop each photo within the batch to your chosen dimensions.

The coolest thing about cropping photos as a batch is that the Crop tool is so smart, it will automatically detect the focal point of your photo and place the crop target accordingly when you click the Auto button beneath Focal Point!

You can also move the crop targets individually for custom placement, or choose from a set focal point menu by clicking the Align options in the Crop menu. Once everything looks just the way you want it to, click the blue checkmark. Too easy!

By clicking the Manage Tools button at the top of the list, you can choose from hundreds of tools and effects from the BeFunky library. Here are a few of our favorite editing possibilities for batch photos:

You can also use the Vibrance tool to bring out the perfect amount of color in each of your photos without oversaturating a single pixel. Our Vibrance tool is so smart, it’ll scan each photo individually and seek out the areas of the image that need a color boost, all while leaving the well saturated areas alone.

Sharpen Photos

Use the Sharpen tool to quickly sharpen images. After clicking on Sharpen, simply use the slider to increase or decrease the amount of sharpness and get crystal clear images in seconds.

Another great tool for sharpening images is the Clarity tool. It enhances your images by adding contrast to the midtones of each individual image, creating a super clear photo without oversharpening!

Make Smart Enhancements

The Auto Enhance tool is ideal when it comes to figuring out the right exposure and color balance for your images. It’s so smart, it’ll sense each photo’s needs individually to boost color, balance exposure, and give your images that expert touch in just one click.
