I created an action that sets a color overlay for text and then saves the image. This is repeated in the same action for a handful of colors. After I run this action I have 10 files all saved as .png with the name of the color.

 

When I try to batch this with multiple images it renames and replaces the files from the previous actions.

 

Below I am going to show what it currently looks like in file names

Input1: "Text 1 Raw"

Output1: White, Blue, Red, Green, Black, Etc.

 

Input2: "Text 2 Raw"

Output2: White, Blue, Red, Green, Black, Etc.

 

This replaces the output 1 files.

 

I would like it to be

Input1: "Text 1 Raw"

Output1: Text 1 Raw White, Text 1 Raw Blue, Text 1 Raw Red, Text 1 Raw Green, Text 1 Raw Black, Etc.

 

Input2: "Text 2 Raw"

Output2: Text 2 Raw White, Text 2 Raw Blue, Text 2 Raw Red, Text 2 Raw Green, Text 2 Raw Black, Etc.

 

Or if they could create subfolders for each raw image.

It would be helpful for you to post a cropped screenshot of the action panel, with all action steps fully expanded with the width of the panel set to show the full path/file info for the save steps. Additionally, showing the Batch interface with the settings that are giving you problems would also be helpful

That is normal behaviour because you have recorded exact filename and path in action step so action will always save files with hard coded names in the hard coded location.

 

Try using Image Processor Pro which will allow you to create new subfolder for each save and to type custom text for filename. Exclude saving step in your action or delete it.
