Hello, why don't you use the image processor, in Bridge's Tools>Photoshop menu? it allows you to do easy conversions without setting up complicated actions.
Thanks for your reply .
I've got a horrible feeling that the Photoshop option mentioned has disappeared from the Tools menu. I recall using it for some HDR work some many months ago, but all that is left with the word photoshop in it is:
"Process collections in photoshop".
Are you referring to this? I attempted to create a "collection" but the process seemed to hang after collecting just a few of the 191 items in the folder.
Sorry but I do appreciate your kind effort to help me.

In Bridge if you click on Tools/Photoshop you should have several options including image processor. If you do not, click on preferences/startup scripts and make sure you have a check mark at least on Bridge and Photoshop.
Thank you Curt Y and also PECourtejoie. The additional and required menu options seem to have re-appeared.
You're both so kind to help such an old man so generously. I need prodding from time to time to enable me to get to grip with things.
I may have to wait until tomorrow to be sure, but, it seems, I'm fairly sure, that the help you have both given me has produced a good result.
I can assure you that I did make an effort to solve my problem by checking through the various help files which did not produce the help that you have given.
Let's hope that tomorrow will prove the result that I think has been achieved.
Many, many thanks
Eventually managed to select the correct option in the tools-photoshop-dropdown menu and succeeded in converting some109 psd images into jpeg images without the word copy in sight.
When converting from 300 ppi psd to 72 ppi psd for email/web use, the drop down options weren't as welcoming so had to return to the photoshop actions solution that I've been using for some years. Much slower because I had to transfer batches of some 20 or images at a time from bridge to photoshop but it works. Then was the need to convert the 72 ppi psd into web friendly jpegs, also using the batch transfer method but quite fast because of the smaller file sizes.
It really is good to know that there are such nice, knowledgeable and helpful people out there that are willing to help at such short notice.
warmest and gratefullest regards to you both - CS6 here I come!
