The batch editor is used to apply filters and effects to multiple images at once.
Step 1: Select Files
Click on the Add File button to browse and select the images you want to process. You can select multiple files at the same time by holding down the Shift or Ctrl keys while selecting. Click on the Add Folder button to select all images within a folder and its sub-folders. Click Next when you have added all the images.

Step 2: Select Effects
Click on the Add button to choose an effect that will be applied to all images. To change the settings of an effect, select the effect in the layer list and click the Settings button. You can reorder layers by dragging the items in the list.

Step 3: Select Output Format and Folder
By default Photopad will save the files in the same format they were loaded in. If you want to convert the format, select "Convert to file format" and select the extension. Some files (e.g., png or jpeg) have other options which can be changed using the Format Options button. Files are normally saved in the same folder they were loaded from. This means they will be overwritten when saved. Alternatively, you can select a different folder to save the files to.
