Create Photoshop Action and Save With Different File Names

I need to create an action that saves each file's unique name. How can I do that? Please provide specific steps.

 

The action will also include the following steps (all but the unique name I know how to do):

1. hide specific layer

2. change RGB to CMYK

3. resize

4. save as a .tif (original is a .PSD) with each file's name (keeping the new file's unique name is the step I don't know how to do)

 

Thanks.

Good news and bad news.

 

Good news: I found a way to do what I want to do using Batch in Photoshop.

Bad news: when I open the batched images in Photoshop, they are black (but the layer icon shows the image, as does the image in the finder). What's up with that?

It's unclear what you need to achieve with the filenaming.

 

Depending on your action, you might be able to duplicate the file and use a new name to be recorded into the action as a static name that differs from the current document name. This may not be that useful as you will need a separate dupe step for each hard-coded filename.

 

You will probably need a script as this is beyond actions which can only record a static path and or static path + static filename.

By @Outtacontext

 

It’s a GPU-related issue, if you zoom in or out many times, or add guides or do something else to trigger a refresh you will likely see the image. You may need to go into Preferences and Technology Previews and check/tick the Disable Native Canvas option and restart Photoshop.

I went to my preferences, and Disable Native Canvas was already checked. So, just as an experiment, I unchecked it and restarted Photoshop. Now, the images are showing properly. What's with that??
