I use a lot of action in my work.. and never really had a problem before.. but I tried making a simple action today and I couldn't get it to work.
Basically all I want it to do is load every file in a folder, resize it, then same it to a different folder as a jpg. (some are PNGs)
Then I go to batch and set it up like this...
but now every time I run the action I get a dialogue pop up asking me for a save location and file name?
Any ideas what is going on here? I have just installed a new copy of PScs6 as I got a new computer, but I swear I have done a zillion of these kinds of action before and it always took all the files in the folder, did what I asked to them and then saved them into the new folder with the same names as they originally had.
My guess is something in your action is creating a layer and jpegs can't have layers and that's the reason your getting the Save As dialog? If you look there is a warning triangle next to Layers in the Save As dialog and the reason for the copy being added to the name.
How are you resizing the image in the action?
ahh.. you know. .I bet that is exactly what it is as some of the PNG files have alphas so they have no background layer.
I'll add a flatten action to it and see if that works...
