You have to go through a million steps to not destroy your image. That slows you down and can create confusion for when you need to undo something.

Or you can open them up in a RAW workflow program and do all your levels, curves, brightness/contrast, hue/saturation, Grayscale mixing, etc, all simultaneously with 200 images in about 20 minutes tops. If the lighting was completely different for each image, than yes of course it's going to take longer, but it still will be a drastically shorter amount of time. And guess what, Good RAW workflow programs are completely nondestructive. They just do instruction sets over the image instead of actually changing the image itself like in photoshop.

Photoshop can do alot of things, but it can't do everything. As a photographer, CS2 is the last program I use when I'm doing post-production. The other 80% of my workflow is done in Lightroom and other misc. programs.
Couldn't you just make an action where you do the color correction, then selection the next image? Just play it through for the pics. Doesn't seem very hard.
