When I use the image processor from Bridge, I specify that I want it to process the images selected in Bridge, save as a PSD and run a set of actions. The files do get saved to a PSD folder, but they do not get closed, so they all remain open. This slows the process down dramatically and it used to close them all, as it should. Any help in getting it to close the files after processing them would be helpful!
What version of photoshop and operating system are you using?
It may have something to do with your action.
Do you have a save step in your action?
If you run the Image Processor on those files without using an action, does it work right?
If it does could you post a screenshot of the actions panel with the action steps open?
Hi. You’ve posted your question in a forum that is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop. I'm moving your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum for specialized attention to your situation.
I am using CS6 (the newest version) and OSX v 10.7.5 currently.
I tried putting a save in the action, but since I'm batching raw files, it wants to pop up a save as box at the end of every image. No bueno.
I tried each of the three actions, that I have combined into one action, individually and the system closes them all just fine.
Here are a couple of screen shots to see what the error is, the PSDs are created and put into the PSD folder (great!), but they don't close!
The action is made up of several actions that I use. As I said, they all play fine individually and close as they should, but once they are all together, they won't close.
If you can figure it out, I'd be soooo grateful!
The action needs a Close recorded step...otherwise, Photoshop will keep the image open. If you are using Image Processor and adding an action, that action needs to have a save and close step at the end.
I put a save and close right now...I did save as - and had it save as a copy and in a new folder and still got the same response. It says it's sorry but it can't process And it says changes have been made do you want to save it?. It used to always work in CS5 but now it doesn't work there either.
is there a different way to do save and close like you are saying?
Not sure what to reset. couldnt' find a box that said reset to default - only thing to reset was the warning dialog. I did that. Ran the action - didn't work. It saved it in a JPEG file within the folder but will not close it in PS. Thanks for your help. I took the save and close step out of the action.
Thank you for that bit of insight, Zura! That handily explains why those of us who normally set up large numbers of history states (I'm set to 200) don't see the problem.
Just keep in mind that increasing the number of history states will put a bigger demand on your RAM.
