Years ago I used Graphic Converter for jpegs, as PS was so poor at making them. Now I use S4W as I usually want the smallest possible file, so I like the fact it strips everything out. But I can see it could cause a few headaches with actions...
Very interesting. I didn't realize SFW was an IR hack. It would be slick if the IR "conditional execution" function could be ported over to the PS action side to avoid having to invoke scripting for simple decision making for common tasks.

Having a fixed destination folder does have its advantages and I can sure relate. If nothing else you can expand the Export command to figure out where it is!

One of the PS CS2 "rumors" is that Adobe beefed up batch processing functionality. That would be great, if true and it shouldn't be much longer until we find out.

PS often seems to be a few steps behind it's users: It was very slow to respond to the needs of web designers & now the File Browser/ACR/Batch processing workflow for digital photographers seems a bit 'clunky'. Fingers crossed for CS2 (or will it be PS9?).
