CS3 - Automate? Droplet? Batch Process?

CS3 - Automate? Droplet? Batch Process?
OK, I'm trying to automate the process of making scanned pictures video friendly. How do I create a process that can automatically do this to 50 or 100 pictures (of various sizes) at a time?

My current flow:
Scan with scanner software and save individual picture to a file
Open PS-CS3 and make new file with the film and video preset
PLACE scanned pic into the video preset file
Apply NTSC colors filter
Resize picture to fit the video frame
Save as PSD

There has to be a faster, better, automated way to do this.

Any help is appreciated

BTW - I am not an expert in PS (obviously or I wouldn't have to ask this question)

Thanks,
John

I'm no expert either, but had an idea. Have you looked into creating an action that you can apply to the whole folder?

Curious, why do you need a step "Apply NTSC colour filters"?

I agree with Shadow. There's no need to bring photoshop into this. Also... Premiere will automatically scale the pics to the proper frame size.

Edit: And what the hell am I doing in the photoshop forum? I never come here. Next I'll be giving advice on keeping barnacles out of your trunks in the underwater video forum.
