I am looking for some tips on how to create a PS action that will work only on images that are larger than 1024 x 1024.  in other words, I don't want to scale up to 1024, only down to 1024 x 1024

Automate > Fit Image has the option to fit without upsizing and can be recorded into an Action.

You have option Don't Enlarge in Fit Image so script will skip images smaller then desired dimensions.

thank you for your quick reply.  I am unsure however how that helps my action ignore images of a specific size.   I have a folder full of images of varying sizes 512 to 4k images.  I only want to scale down images that are larger than 1024 x 1024.  smaller images (i.e. the 512 x) are to be skipped by the scaling action and remain at their original dimension.

@Lars Fabiunke25514244neen  - That is exactly what I recommended. Give it a go with an image smaller and larger than your target dimensions, as shown in the screenshot from @Bojan Živković

Yeah, I was replying from my phone and couldn't remember the term used in Photoshop. Don't Enlarge, upscale, uprez, upsize etc. are all of equivalent meaning.
