Alright how do I explain this? I have 400 items that are sold in the same package and I created a photoshop action where there is a picture of an item placed on the package photo. This worked all fine, but now I wanted to create a droplet. But the droplet does not work at all. because in my action there is an open command for a product image with a specific name. Any know how to fix it? So I can drop 400 pictures on my droplet and they all get automatically placed on the package?
