Automatically saving in a batch action


I have an action in Photoshop:

  1. Set Background
  2. Black & White
  3. Make adjustment layer
  4. Set Current adjustment layer

Then I go to File->Automate->Batch and set it to output to a folder with Override action 'save as' commands unchecked (though tried with it checked) and File Naming as photo + 2 Digit Serial Number + extension.

When I run it, it prompts me with a save-as dialog box with every file, which defeats a good chunk of the whole purpose. Am I missing a setting to have it automatically save these images?

Accepted Answer

You need to add "Save As" to the action. And "Close" as well, unless you want them to remain open. "Override Save As" only overrides the destination. If you don't have Save As as part of the action, there's nothing to override.
