Instead of going thru all that you could try the Image Processor Pro script. which has a Save for Web setting.
Or if you have adobe illustrator you could use two save for web actions and then batch process the ai files.

I agree with Jeff, there are much better ways to do this directly in Illustrator, no need for Photoshop (Export as, Save for web).
Or perhaps using better ways in Photoshop than what you have been using. If you really like the load files to layers route, once all the named layers are ready, highlight all layers and right click in the layer panel and use the export as feature.
You could also use the layers to files script, however you would likely need to use Adobe Bridge’s batch rename tool to remove the unwanted parts of the filename.
Thanks Jeff and Stephen! The Image Processor Pro script method looks like the best for me. I will give it a shot. The first method you suggested Stephen, is interesting. But I see I need to put in a filename prefix, and ideally, I would like to the JPGs or GIFs to have the same filenames as their original AI files (obviously without the .ai extension).
Yeah, avoiding Ps entirely is prolly the best bet.

Agreed, this is why I showed how to use Adobe Bridge’s Batch Rename feature to remove the unwanted prefix and the unwanted .ai filename extension, which is a two part step. The other two suggestions should handle the filename issue better.
