Chapter 7. Exploiting Automation > Rules for Saving Files in a Batch Operation

Rules for Saving Files in a Batch Operation

To make sure that the processed files get saved in the format you want, you need to record a Save step in the action that will be applied in Batch. This Save step dictates the file format (.tif, .jpg, .psd) and options that go with that format—TIFF compression options, JPEG quality settings, and so on.

Now comes the second counterintuitive bit. You must check Override Action “Save As” Commands, otherwise the files don't get saved where you want them, don't get saved with the names you want, or possibly even don't get saved at all! When you check Override Action “Save As” Commands,the file format and file format parameters recorder in the action's Save step are applied when saving the file, but the name and destination are overridden by the options you specified in the Batch dialog box.
