I know it can be achieved by Scripting, but would be very helpful if that could be achieved just by Actions Panel.

See the File -> Automate -> Batch command.

Please imagine the action that is resizing the image and saves each size version of that image. I believe this can't be done with Automate -> Batch Command as this command doesn't support multiple saves from one file (as I'm aware).

At this moment I'd have to save each file (each size) in another folder on my PC and then batch-rename the files outside the Photoshop.

So, it is possible, but working on the jobs where thousands of files needs to be created it would be so much more confortable if I could just set the preffix or counter while creating the Action.

Is there a way to add the folder name as a prefix in the image processor pro process.
