    Batch Save For Web (Legacy) - Not working as intended

    Centeine Level 1

      Hi All,


      I am brand new to the Adobe Forums - so I hope I'm doing this right.


      Essentially, I am trying to use an Action to Batch optimize images for Web. There are a ton of images for this client and I don't particularly want to sit and optimize all 200+ individually.


      I have set up a new Action to do the following:




      The problem is that when I run the batch, instead of saving each image individually, it just overwrites one file over and over. The batch settings are:



      I have no idea what I'm doing wrong - I followed a tutorial, as I have never set up an Action like this before. No one else seems to be having a problem, and I can't seem to find any discussions, here or elsewhere, talking about this particular issue.


      I tried using Export instead of the Legacy Save for Web, but the Action didn't record that at all (which confuses me).


      I have an image compression program, but it doesn't compress them enough, even when I run the compression multiple times. Not to mention that PS has a really good optimization system with great results. So I would like to get this working.


      Any help would be great!
