When I do an action and save in a folder, all it does when I run it is to replace the file

When I do an action and save it in a folder, all it does when I run it is replace the file in the destination folder, even if I run the action on 1000 images, all I get in the destination folder is 1 file... what am I missing?

 

Thank you!

Make sure the file name is not highlighted (marked in blue) in the Save dialog when you record the action.

 

If it is, the file name is recorded in the action and so it keeps overwriting. If it is not highlighted, the file name is not recorded and the file keeps its original name.

 

To "un-highlight" the name, it is usually enough to click another destination folder and then back.

The file name is transferred to the action even if it is not marked. Adobe has simply messed up again here.

The same problem - and the same suggested solutions (but unfortunately in German)

It's easier with the Translate button under each post.

😉

 

(More complicated contributions can then still be translated with external translator programmes.)

Why search every low and high,
