    Change the specific save for web options by re-recording the action accordingly and modifying the overwrite behavior in the SFW panels Options button sub-panel.

    Post the action. I lot depends on which save feature you used and how the save step was recorded.

     

    When you record a step like "Save as..." you want to select the directory you want to save the file in. However you do not want to change the file name field in any way. You can use the file tpe pull down menu to select a file type like Jpeg.   When that step is played back the current documents filename will be used during the save.  If while recording the step you made and change to the filename field that filename will be recorded into the action.  When that save step is played it will alway want to save the file into the filename that was recorded into the action.

    You cannot because the Batch command only overwrites the Save As command while the SFW is an export plug-in. The two might function similarly but they're very different under the hood.

    To edit any step of an action simply double click on it's command in the Actions panel.

    Sorry, i don't quite understand your question. Not much can be done about the fact that the Actions panel also records the filename used in the SFW dialog but i know that this isn't the case anymore with CS4/5 which record only the folder used

    Which version of photoshop?

     

    If you have cs2 (looks like cs2 from your screenshots) or older,

    you can use image ready and save yourself a whole lot

    of hassle.

     

    If you have image ready, take a look at this post, toward the bottom.

    You might try one of the following scripts instead of using save for web in an action:

     

    Image Processor Pro 2.2.8

    Picture Processor:

     

    http://www.scriptsrus.talktalk.net/

     

     

    I'm not sure that you can get the save for web not to show that replace dialog, if you trying to save over files of the same name.

    Actually that might work in cs5.

     

    Did you try recording a new save for web action in cs5?
