PS 6 Automated Batch Question

  1. I have a question regarding PS 6 and automated batch processing; I
    searched the archives, and if I missed it, I apologize. 1)can I
    convert the original Jpeg images (in a folder) to Tiff? If so, how?
    2) My images came from scanned negatives, and I am resizing them,
    watermarking, and renaming them for the clients. Using the automated
    batch process, can I do the following: I understand how to rename
    the images using the name, and add a suffix (like the "A" in the
    frame #), but can I choose how the numbering starts (like with 0 or
    1)? Sorry to be so longwinded, but I'm new to Photoshop. Thanks in
    advance for your advice. Here's what I'm looking for: name+roll
    number+frame number+ "A" if necessary, and either jpeg or tiff

  2. I use Photoshop batch process, with actions. However, when I need batch file format conversions or renaming, I use ACDSee instead, as long as I'm working with 8 bit images. These processes are already set up in the program, and are much more direct and intuitive. Several other freware/shareware progams (Irfan View for one) can also handle these tasks easily.
