Question How to batch different versions of a pic on PS?

Hi guys, I'm wondering how to make different versions of a picture in PS. The situation is that I have a client who needs different versions of the same picture and I want to run a set of actions on the same picture by using the batch command, if that's correct for what I'm looking for.

I tried doing a big action, which loads other actions (toning actions, indeed) and this big action saves each version of the picture (with the tnoning action applied) inside an specified folder but the problem is when I apply all this through the batch, because Photoshop gets inside an infinite loop of applying all the toning actions over and over again.

What I specifically did was creating an action which duplicates the image, then applies a toning action on the duplicated pic, then it saves it to a desired folder; then it selects the first picture, makes another duplicated and runs the second toning actions and it saves that new version on the same folder and so on. So the problem is that an infinite loop is created when I run all this trough the file/batch function! So after all the toning actions were applied, Photoshop starts doing all the processes again and again and again...

Any tip to make different versions of the same picture avoiding the infinite loop?

Thanks a lot for your suggestions!

did yo end the action? meaning record that after doing the desired duplication and resize you close all the files including the original?

Ahhh... I was thinking that could be the solution... Now you mention it, I will try that!

For the other hand, I tried the same action but without using the batch, and it works, but better using the batch, so I will try this...

Thanks a lot, pal!

Haven't had any problems with infinite loop but the actions are sometimes wonky so. Also I always end my actions don't know why so when I read that you didn't "end" them it got me thinking
