    Photoshop CS6 - Batch function will not save files

    SusanSherman Level 1

      OK, I have used the "Automate/Batch" function well over a hundred times, so this situation (first time using it in CS6) is VERY frustrating!

       

      Running Adobe CS6 extended v. 13.0.1 x32 on a Win XP sp3 OS.

       

      I have a slew of photos that need nothing done except to resize from the native file size to 6 in x 4 in @ 150 ppi and save into a new folder (to not override the original).  I have recorded the action multiple times now and each time I run the action, the files do not save! Here are the various parameters I've used:

       

      Attempt #1:

           Action Steps Recorded -

        • Open
        • Save for web (set size parameters here)
        • Close

            Batch settings -

        • Play Set: correct folder selected; Action: correct action selected
        • Source: folder - selected folder where native files are located (on desktop)
        • NO checkmarks next to any options
        • Destination: folder - selected folder where small files should be saved (on desktop)
        • NO checkmark on override action
        • Did not change file naming parameters

      Result #1 - DID NOT SAVE FILES

       

      Attempt #2:

           Action Steps Recorded -

        • Open
        • Save for web (set size parameters here)
        • Close

           Batch settings -

        • Play Set: correct folder selected; Action: correct action selected
        • Source: folder - selected folder where native files are located (on desktop)
        • Cehckmark override Action "Open" commands
        • Destination: folder - selected folder where small files should be saved (on desktop)
        • NO checkmark on override action
        • Did not change file naming parameters

      Result #2 - DID NOT SAVE FILES

       

      Attempt #3:

           Action Steps Recorded -

        • Open
        • Save for web (set size parameters here)
        • Close

            Batch settings -

        • Play Set: correct folder selected; Action: correct action selected
        • Source: folder - selected folder where native files are located (on desktop)
        • Checkmark override action "Open" commands
        • Destination: folder - selected folder where small files should be saved (on desktop) 
        • Checkmark override action "Save As" commands
        • Did not change file naming parameters

      Result #3- DID NOT SAVE FILES

       

      Attempt #4:

           Action Steps Recorded -

        • Open
        • Image Size (set parameters here)
        • Save as (set folder location here)
        • Close

           Batch settings -

        • Play Set: correct folder selected; Action: correct action selected

        • Checkmark override Action "Open" commands
        • Destination: folder - selected folder where small files should be saved (on desktop) 
        • NO checkmark on override action
        • Did not change file naming parameters

      Result #4- DID NOT SAVE FILES

       

      Attempt #5:

           Action Steps Recorded -

        • Open
        • Image Size (set parameters here)
        • Save as (set folder location here)
        • Close

             Batch settings - 

        • Play Set: correct folder selected; Action: correct action selected
        • Source: folder - selected folder where native files are located (on desktop)
        • Checkmark override action "Open" commands
        • Destination: folder - selected folder where small files should be saved (on desktop) 
        • Checkmark override action "Save As" commands
        • Did not change file naming parameters

      Result #5- DID NOT SAVE FILES

       

      Please help!  This has never been a problem before CS6 and I truly am at my wits end trying to figure out why the files will not save.  I have several hundred files that I need to run this on, so doing it individually is not an option.

       

      Thanks in advance for any and all insights!
