I shoot events and need to be able to print upwards of 1000 8x10 images in a day. I am going to be purchasing DNP DS80 printers and I am looking for a batch printing solution. I will not be doing any green screen or really any editing with the software, I just need something for batch printing numerous files at a time. The amounts I will be doing just will be a nightmare if I have to manually print each photo. The photos will be with the same lighting, same backdrop all day long so colors and stuff should remain the same through an entire day.
So, my question is does Photokey have an option to batch print and will it work well with the DNP DS80 printers?
If not, can anyone point me in the right direction? Is simply recording an action in photoshop a viable option?
Thanks for your help in advance.

PhotoKey isn't set up to batch print, just to batch export image files. I'm not sure what the options would be for batch printing.

There are programs available that will automatically print images that are in a particular folder on your pc. Not sure what they are actually called but just try searching online for batch printing programs and you should be able to find something.

If you find one I would be interested to know what program works for you as this question does come up now and again?
