This has been driving me insane. I am currently in PhotoshopCC and I know that several versions back I had no problems doing this but now I cannot create a generic action that I can then have save out to different folders.
What I used to be able to do and want to do again:
I have a project that requires me to turn a print magazine into a website quarterly. I receive the files packaged from InDesign and I want to process the images to specific sizes and then save as web optimized.
For each article I want to be able to select the source folder and then a unique folder to save to for each article, so that optimized images for each article remain with the article files.
I never had an issue doing this until a version or two back, since then I can only create an action that will save for web to whatever folder is in the action.
I resorted to using image processing scripts and never realized I was not resampleing the images down to 72 dpi and am having an attack of how could I be so stupid.
If anyone can direct me to creating an action that can accomplish the save for web with the ability to control what folder my files save to I'd really appreciate it.
Try looking at menu File>Scripts>Image Processor or download from Russell Brown web site the Image Processor Pro plugin script the you will find menu File>Automate>Image Processor Pro which is more flexible.
Do you have link to the website you mention? I use the FIle>Scripts>Image Processor and getting into Bridge to check some metadata I see that the images remain 300 dpi.
Thanks for the suggestion I am going to try to Find Russel Brown's script
http://russellbrown.com/scripts.html akk you need is the Image Processor Pro.jsx and Image Processor Pro.xml from his services install package just rename the file extension to Zip and extract its contents and copy the two files to your Photoshop's path presets\scripts\
