Anyone know how I make this stop? Batch process, using the folder and action I choose, copies images to the destination folder as well as the desktop. I end up with hundreds of images on my desktop.
Look at the action your using to save the images as.
Most likely the desktop was recorded as the path when making the action.
In the batch dialog under Destination one can check Override "Save As" Commands and the files will only be saved to the folder specified in the batch dialog and not in the action itself.
