How to Batch Export PNGs in Photoshop

Step 1: Open a file you want to convert / export to PNG

 

Step 2:

Create a new Action, then you MUST choose File ->Export -> Save for Web (Legacy). From my testing, no other export choices from the menu will work for making a PNG export Action.

Step 3: Select PNG-24 preset, then hit SAVE.

Step 4: Create and/or choose the folder you want to save the PNGs, then hit SAVE

IMPORTANT: The folder you pick here will ALWAYS be used for saving any PNGs exported when running the Action on a single file or using it for batch exporting. You'll need to make a new separate action if you want to have a different folder location when running the action.

Step 5: Close the file and choose NO for the save changes UI window

Step 6: Go to Window -> Actions to reopen the Actions window, then hit STOP on the action recording for your PNG Export action.

Step 7: Go to File -> Automate -> Batch

Step 8: Pick your action from the Set: and Action: dropdowns, and set your destination to NONE, then hit OK.

In the screenshot below, I happened to name my Action Set: Convert to PNG, and I also named the Action: Convert to PNG, but you can name them whatever you like of course.

(Note: Even if you pick FOLDER for destination, the exported PNGs will still go to the folder path set in the Action step no matter what.)

Or, you can install Image Processor Pro which works great. Or if you look on these forums, there are numerous scripts available. Or you can use the Export feature in Adobe Bridge.

Thanks for mentioning about the Export window in Bridge. I didn't realize it was there.

Step 1: For convenience, make a preset similar to the one in the screenshot called "PNG Export"

Step 2: Drag the images to convert onto the preset
