Photoshop: Allow option to repeat response when running an action

First let me thank you for a great product! I use Photoshop every day.

When running a Automate batch function on an action that resizes images in one folder and then writes them out to another folder, the JPEG Options popup message appears. One must click OK to continue. This can occur many times. It would be very helpful to have a checkbox to repeat for all occurrences of the same alert. With many hundreds of images this can quickly become ridiculous.

thanks, Richard

Richard, do you know that you can disable the saving options in the batch menu? see this mega-tutorial for more info: http://www.atncentral.com/zip/Photosh...

Yes, I am aware that one can disable the saving option but I do not see in the documentation how to change the name of each file as it is being saved. In my case, I am creating an icon sized image for each of the 900 large images for a shopping cart. each icon image must have the _t suffix. I saw in the documentation you sent that it mentions the File Browser’s batch rename function but I do not know what that is nor do I see an explanation in the docs,

What is it?

All that the action does is to resize the file, then save with a suffix?

I would rather use Bridge's Image processor (it could run an action, too), to a new folder, then Bridge's batch rename, that would keep the current name, plus add your suffix of choice.

BTW, the file browser was the ancestor of Bridge.

You could also look for image processor pro on this page, look at the video: http://russellbrown.com/scripts.html
It might be a one stop shop for what you want to achieve.

I tried using the save within the action and it changed to file type for some of the files. I have a mix of .jpg and .gif It appears I must separate the tile types if I am to use the save within the action. I did not see a way to save by the incoming file type.

Sounds like you're using Photoshop 7? and Russel Brown's Image Processor is the way to go but I it does not create gifs only jpegs, tiffs and psd's ! It is standard and more robust in the subsequent versions of Photoshop. Don't use Save for Web if you're batching jpegs, just maybe test one image to get the quality setting # from the Save for Web dialog (cancel the box) and divide SFW quality # by 8.333 and choose that result (rounded) in the Image Processor to batch. So, I think the maybe the question is how to batch gifs using SFW, as I've had snafoo's doing this also.
