Photoshop CS6 saved action not overwriting file

  • Updated 6 years ago
I have always had an action that allows me to resize an image and save it as a default name (call it "default.jpg"). I just upgraded to CS6 and the action no longer will overwrite the previous file.

To replicate:

Get 2 files
Manually resize file 1 and save on desktop to default.jpg
--| default.jpg = file 1
Create an action to resize file 2, overwrite default.jpg, and close file
--| default.jpg = file 2
Reopen file 1 and run newly created action
--| default.jpg = file 2

Either this is a new "feature", a bug, or I am missing a setting somewhere.

Ok...I have done some more troubleshooting and when looking at the commands it says:

Using: Save for Web
Operation: Save
Custom File Name: "default.html"
Format: JPEG

The dialog when going through it says to save images only, I have tried to manually type in default.jpg, and also select the already existing file. When I view default.html it appears to be image data.

I cannot get an action to "Save for Web" as a .jpg...it just wants to save as a .html file.

Not sure how to tie the two together.
