I will admit I've not used actions in some time but… have you turned off the dialog toggles in the action pallete…? Do seek help in the general forum too… Many more users there use actions too…
I was able to get it to do what I wanted eventually. Solutions is to NOT use the "Save to Web" dialog.
To get the batch working I did the following during an Action recording:
1. Standard Image Resize (not from Save to Web dialog)
2. Use "Save As" and select JPEG quality options
I was able to successfully use this Action in a Batch on an entire folder of images and get them all resized the quality adjusted and put in a new folder -- without any need for my interaction.
Is there an alternative to "Actions"?
Oh good… by next week you can help me when stuck… There should be most of the scripting documents installed with the apps inc. the ESTK (debugging tool kit) as PDF otherwise try the devcentre…
