How to photoshop many files simultaneously?

Is there a way for me to convert 15-20 images all at once to have a CMYK color profile, be 300 dpi and save as TIF format in photoshop or am I stuck going one at a time?

    Yes and no. You will have to open each file separately, but you can make a "recording" of the various actions and then just press one button to do them all. It will save lots of time.

    Here's how Photoshop explains it...

    1 Open a file.

    2 In the Actions palette, click the New Action button (), or choose New Action from the palette menu.

    3 Enter a name for the action.

    4 Choose a set from the pop-up menu.

    5 If desired, set one or both of the following options:

    # Assign a keyboard shortcut to the action. You can choose any combination of a Function key, the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac OS), and the Shift key (for example, Ctrl+Shift+F3).

    6 Click Record. The Record button in the Actions palette turns red ().

    Important: When recording the Save As command, do not change the filename. If you enter a new filename, Photoshop records the filename and uses that filename each time you run the action. Before saving, if you navigate to a different folder, you can specify a different location without having to specify a filename.

    7 Choose the commands, and perform the operations you want to record.

    8 To stop recording, click the Stop button, choose Stop Recording from the Actions palette menu, or press the Escape key. To resume recording in the same action, choose Start Recording from the Actions palette menu.

    After you make that action you go to file>automate>batch then choose a folder with all the images in it, select the action, and click ok, it will open them all and apply the action to it. In destination you choose for it to open each, apply action, save and close, so that there will not be too many images open at once.
