I tried making an action and using the NEW "EXPORT" and selected "EXPORT AS" and it left it out of the action.
So now I'm back using legacy
New Quick Export feature can't be made an action...
If you record the quick export feature and stop it, nothing happens and no action is added to the set.
Have to use the legacy Save for Web, which works just like it used to.
1.) the action step itself has the label "Select menu item"
2.) when the action is run, this action step seems to perform asynchronously. For example, AFTER I run the Export As... action, I'd like it to close the document I was working on. However, it appears the Export As dialog doesn't stop the action from progressing, so the document closes AS the dialog is opening and it tries to export the next open document. I tried adding an Insert Stop action step, but that seems to break the dialog as well.
I have tried the proposed steps 1) and 2), and I am not able to record the "Export As..." dialog. I have also tried the "Quick Export as SVG" method, but that dialog can not be recorded into actions...
Adobe, oh mighty pixel overlords, please add support for this feature. Thanks =]
Export will not record in actions, when using "export as"...
Also, while it's working I'm unable to do other things on my mac, as Photoshop always lays itself on top of other windows.
Please remove the OPEN EXPLORER WINDOW 'feature' and this may fix the Quick Export issues within Actions.
I really want to dump the old 'Save for Web' workflow but until I can script 'Export As' actions I'm stuck with the old, clunky option for any automated or batched work. C'mon Adobe, exporting optimised assets at different sizes is bread and butter for thousands of users... SORT IT OUT!
It is essential to more complex workflows that you can save web friendly images. I rely heavily on BATCH export methods to run through large volumes of images and the fact that CC isn't able to do this properly is a massive main. I am stuck instead on having to run the legacy save for web several times to produce different image sizes which eats up time
I need to be able to batch save images in three different sizes. That's the kind of thing Photoshop was built for. Come on?
i think my problem is similar to yours. I am trying to run a photo resizing action for a batch. It includes Save for web (which seems to be called as "Export as" in the new CC). I would like to be able to set the destination folder in the Automate batch window, because it is different for each of my batches. I understand, that i have to choose the destination folder than tick the box Override action "save as" commands. But it doesn't want to change the folder, it simply saves the photos in the folder that is specified in the action. So the Override doesn't seem to work in the case of Save for web. I wonder if this is the same bug in photoshop or I'm doing something wrong?Thank you in advance.
The last Save for Web dialog supports actions, so its replacement obviously should. Probably just overlooked this in development of the new feature.
3rd party solutions like Image Processor may make for an effective band-aid, but clearly shouldn't be relied upon for so simple a task in the long term. I don't believe it's terribly constructive to our goals of getting this feature re-implemented in photoshop to support 3rd party band-aids either.
I would like to script the following actions:
- click on export > export As
- select PNG format
- select "Transparency"
- select "Smaller File (8 bit)
- set image size
- set canvas size
- select "no metadata"
- finally validate with "export all"
I prefer to use "Export as" over "save For Web" because it generates much smaller images and it allows me to set the canvas size which I cannot do with "Save for Web". "Export As" is also much faster than "Save for Web"
I've read the Photoshop CC 2015 Scripting Reference but didn't see anything about it.
The only export types for the exportDocument method seem to be ILLUSTRATORPATHS and SAVEFORWEB.
Do you know how I can achieve that ?
It would be very helpful to be able to use the "Export As" feature in actions, similar to how you can use the "Save For Web (Legacy)" feature in actions.
I often create an action to Save For Web (Legacy) with specific export settings (size, quality, etc.), and then I run an Automate > Batch with that action on a large folder of images that I need to process with specific settings. I would really like to utilize the new "Export As" feature with it's multiple size export features, but because it doesn't work with actions, I rarely have the opportunity to use it in my daily workflow.
