I have been editing jewellery shots in PS CC and CS6 and as they were for web batched them from CYMK to RGB with Automator.

    Is there a way to queue batch processing?

    Let's say I have 10 different image sets that need to be processed with 10 different actions. Is there a way with Photoshop or LightRoom to create a processing queue and process all of them at once without any user interaction. If not, is there an alternative out there?
