Photos in the folder disappeared when I use, Batch option in photoshop. I did File ->auomate-> batch. Only one time the action got executed though many photos were in the folder. Then I opened source folder, no photos in the folder. In my destination folder, there was only one photo. This bug happened for me for the first time.

Could it be that your Batch process simply overwrote the same file every time it made a save?

Could you post more details about the Batch process itself?

Thanks Michael for your response. I have kept more than 50 photos in the source folder. And I have created empty destination folder. I have defined the action (1. image resize 2. save for web 3. close the current file 4. save no 5. end the action). Then I ran the batch processing. When I ran the action it was executed only once, then I checked the source folder no images left over there. I could see only one image in the destination folder.

No worries mate. Happy to try and help.

 

When you save for web...
1. Does the new file get a new dynamic name each time? Or
2. Does the new file get saved every time with the same name?

 

If it's option 2, this would explain why you only have one file in the destination folder.
