Script  save in current folder

May 2, 2013 9:30 PM

When making a scipt in photoshop  ( let's say resize and save) the box ask for a folder where to save

If you want to run automation  you have to say which folder where to get the photos (including or not sub-folders)  and a folder where to save

how is it possible to save in the current folder without telling which folder ?  just save !

 

thank you

    Are you talking Actions or Scripting?

    If you include the Save (if you do mean »Save« by »just save !« indeed) in the Action you schould be able to foregoe the Destination in the Batch.

    You seem to have used improper terminology in the original post then, »Save« is not »Save for Web«.

     

    it is a big problem with photoshop and without this possibility the automations are useless

    For automation Photoshop does not only offer Actions but also Scripting (with JavaScript, AppleScript, Visual Basic).

    If Actions fall short the task may need Scripting.

    You may want to ask for help over at

    This does not really seem a problem as a »Save As« in an Action can achieve that (if I remenber correctly) and the target position for »Save for Web« can be set with Scripts.

    If you don’t want to use Scripts that is your decision.

     

    If it never worked as you want why do you define »normalcy« as a state that never was?
