    Hi all,

    need some help with photoshop actions. I need to run a few filters on an opened image and save the results in separate files. Steps that I'm doing now are as follows:

    Code:
    Open File ( png ).
    
    Gausian Blur (3)
    Save as  filename-b3.png
    
    undo blur
    Monochrom Gausian Noise- (9)
    Save as filename-n9.png
    
    Undo blur
    Save For Web - JPEG (Q: 33)
    
    Close File
    I have the action recorded and it works as intended. However, there is just one thing I want. I want it to stop at the "Save As" steps and ask me for the filename, instead of using the one I used during the action recording.

    Any ideas?

    Good question... I've had the same problem in the past with "Save As" in a batch. I once corrected the problem by just creating two batches that save the different results into two different target folders.

    Batches would have worked if didn't have to run the same thing over and over again. That brings me to something else, can you save batches? LOL

    Well, I'll leave the TD offer up for a couple of days, just in case if someone has any ideas.
