  • Batch processing, saving to jpeg dialog pops up

    I am trying to batch process a set of jpeg files using photoshop action (cs2). The part of my action is close and save the image. However when I run the action, the save to jpeg dialog box pops up, and I had to manually click on save for the action to continue. Is there any way to prevent the box from coming up?

    es, in setting up the batch automation be sure to check the box called " Overide Action "Save As" commands.

      I have already checked the override action save as box, but it is not helping. Any other ideas? Maybe there is a global setting in PS that disables the popup?

        If you respond to the dialog box, does the action continue and produce the correct result or does it quit or give you an error message. It sounds like there may be some rule voilation in your Action. For example trying to save a file as a jpg when the image is in 16 bit mode or Lab color etc. Or you have set up the action such that it must have some information that you are failing to provide and therefore presents you with a dialog box.
        You should try putting the action in Single Step Mode and trace through it to see what is happening.

          Unfortunately not.

          Since PS5 the workaround for this annoyance has been this combination:

          * Action must include a File > Save as... (.jpg) command
          (don't change file name... specify any folder at record time; choose compression value)

          * Batch dialog:

          Destination: Folder Choose (browse to desired folder, even if same one specified in the recorded step)
          (x) Override Action "Save As" commands

          ...as Murray noted.

          ---------------

          Does your action include the File > Save as... step?

            Adding a 'save as...' step in my action solves the problem. The jpeg dialog box no longer pops up during batch processing. Thank you to you both for help.

              Glad we were able to get you over the hump. It really shouldn't be this obscure/difficult, but what can I say.

              If you've not checked out File > Scripts > Image Processor, you might want to give that a look. Works kind of like Batch (pick input/output folders and action to play) w/o the goofy setting acrobatics.

                  Hello all,
                  Wonder if this works.. an alternate idea to batch process / create JPEG files without any need for CS2 or CS3. Try uploading your entire collection of image files ( any size ) at www.Pixelide.com

                  The online workspace auto-converts image files to JPG comps and offers custom resizing and downloads. This makes it a very easy to auto-convert PSD or TIFF files into JPG versions. Then bulk download everything or share them as needed. Good luck!

                    Looks like a handy bunch of tools/functions for not only file conversion, but other image management needs as well. It does not, however, appear to address the needs of those who want to apply the steps in an action to a folder of files.

                    Anymore CS2's and CS3's Scripts > Image Processor facility meet most file conversion and/or batch processing needs.

                      by cbeam2
                      When I run my action the dialog box for Jpg quality comes up and the action pauses till I click OK. What do I need to do for it to save and close. Oh yes I'm running it from the Batch command.

                      I've seen a few posts on this via the search function, but nothing addressing my specific problem, so I apologize if this seems redundant to some as I'm having a lot of trouble understanding this.

                      Action ignores the save to folder during batch

                      I created a simple action to downsize my images to 800 width, then save for web, then I close them.

                      When I try to batch process the images, if I created the action in one folder, and I attempt to run it on pictures in a different folder, when I choose the destination folder in the batch...
