Photoshop: Export As does not support Actions and does not react to them

There is no way to record an action so that I can automate Export As dialogue box. What I want to do is to record an action which will save one image in three formats via the Export As dialogue box and the action should remember the settings i input for each dimension. Previously Save for Web did this, but now you are calling it legacy so i expect Export As to be accessible same way via actions as Save for Web was. Thank you.

The solution is to use Save As -> Jpeg. You get all the same options and they all record into the action.

Of course it would be better for Adobe to add recording of the Export As fuction, utterly dumb that it does not work.

I was just reading how export as gave better results than save for web, so thought I'd update my 10 year old export actions to find that not only does is not work but that it hasn't for 5 years.

Jeff, it's now 5 years later and we still can't put Export As in an action... /sadface.

Is there any update on if or when this will be added to Photoshop? I have just tried to export my layers to 1000x1000 canvas size using Export As and create and action but noticed it doesn't work!

 

I also read through these comments and many people suggested using Image Processor Pro but that doesn't allow me to resize the images to a 1:1 ratio.

Same problem. My experience of Export is that it is never saved in the action list (like everything else is and should be), just ignored while other actions are progressively added to the list when recording. Save as is not an alternative option to use, as it creates a lot of dialog boxes that freeze everything while playing the action, ruining the whole automation process.
