I'm trying to make a batch to process 110 illustrator files and save them as Gifs.
I record the Action (which includes "Save for Web" (enlarge to 1000*1400), Save, and then Close the Ai file (which I think is not even necessary if you choose "Save and close" in the Destination area of the batch window).
When I play the Action it performs "Save for Web", etc, but it doesn't save the Gif file, it waits for me to press the Save button.
It seems stupid but I want the batch to save the file by itself and carry on with next one.
Is this possible or do I have to press the save button for every file.
Thanks in advance
This is not an answer to your question, but I would suggest your reconsidering the Save for Web size, unless the site is intended for a special target group using large browser windows. 1000 x 1400 is large, much larger than the browser window used by most; and most dislike having to scroll horizontally. Few people use the maximum browser window size, and the normally recommended width is some 800 or 840.
Thanks for your answer but the images are not for web.
I need to enlarge them because they have a lot of detail and I need to send them to someone to be checked. The only place I can save as Gif is on the "Save for Web" dialog and Gifs have the smallest size/best quality ratio for the images I need.
I don't understand why when executing the batch process it stops at the "save window" waiting for me to click on "Save".
Nevertheless, thanks anyway
