For your F6 save files action, record it saving a file (it doesn't matter what or where for the moment)
Now, in the actions palette, click the right hand box where your save action is. A dialogue box will pop up saying "This will toggle the state of all dialogs in this action..." Click ok beacause we want to hand over control of the save back to the user. Now, when you run your save action the dialogue will appear and you can save the file where and as you want.
Hope this helps.
Just to make sure: »Copy« is the only option, there is no »Save as«, »Save to desktop« etc.?
Because as you make no mention of the format you save to I wonder if you might be aggravating compression damage on the images with your current procedure.
Thank you, I will try this today when I get started up on this project again and let you know. Sounds like it'll be exactly what I need, so thank you!
Yes, copy is what makes the most sense for this project. These images are just small employee id photos that are inserted in recognition newsletters and such at a small size and will never be used in print. Save or save as is available, but would add more steps to the work flow that wouldn't be worth it in the end.
