Batch export
Last updated on 2020/1/21

Polarr users on desktop platforms like Mac or Windows have access to some advanced functionality when it comes to exporting images in batches. This is a feature for power users and anyone else needing to export a bunch of photos that are in a series.

Here's what you can do with the batch export in Polarr:

  • Batch rename
  • Batch resize
  • Apply adjustments to multiple photos

Batch rename

Just edited a set of photos and want to give them similar file names? Just use the batch rename option to apply a prefix of your choice to all the files.

Batch resize

Using batch makes it so that you can apply the same width, height and resolution To all the images. You can also crop them using batch resize. Use this whenever you want a bunch of images to come out at similar image dimensions.

Apply adjustments

You'll notice that there's a section under batch export called 'apply adjustments'. You have two options: Auto and current adjustments. Here's how they work.

  • Auto: Polarr will automatically apply adjustments to the photos you're batch exporting.
  • Current adjustments: The adjustments on the photo you currently have active will be applied to all other photos you batch export

How to select photos for batch export

Notice the "Photos" heading with the options to pick between all, edited, and select? This is where you're going to be able to choose which photos get exported in batch. They should be pretty self-explanatory, but just in case here's what will happen with each option:

  • All: Every photo open in the film strip below will be exported.
  • Edited: Only photos that you've edited in the film strip will make the cut and be exported.
  • Select: You can manually select the photos open in the film strip to export.

That's it! Just click "batch save" to export multiple photos at once. Keep in mind that the ability to access these batch export settings is available on Polarr on Mac, Windows 10, online and Chrome.
