Photoshop: Make Automate dialog options clearer

I recently struggled with my first attempt at batch processing. The difficulty was in figuring out two things:

1. How to get past Camera Raw, to avoid having to click "Open Image" for each image.
2. Understanding that "Override Save As" is the way to put in save locations and file names.

In my opinion, the dialog box does an extremely poor job of explaining this, and the note that comes up when you check "override.." is no help at all.

Why not say, "Check Suppress Open..." to bypass Camera Raw," and change the "override save as" to something like "Specify Saved file names and Locations," with a box for "Use the ones in the Action."

That would ahve saved me hours.
