hi, i'm having problems with certain batch automations on photoshop 7. for certain actions, everything goes fine, but for others, after executing the action for each file, the save dialog pops up every single time, which makes things really inefficient.
i'm not checking the "override action "save as" command" for i don't include saving in my actions. also, under "destination", i choose folder.
someone please help! this is frustrating!

maybe you could list what goes on in the action in question... its components

eg. 1 watermarking

make text layer
set current text layer
make fill layer
select mask channel
rasterize current layer
move current layer
select layer "copyright..."
rasterize current layer
select layer "shape 1"
merge layers
emboss
set current layer
set current layer
set current layer
gaussian blur
set file info of current doc
flatten image

(basically, it's just creating a text and custom shape for the watermark, embossing it, changing blending mode to hard light, blurring, setting file info, and flattening.)

eg. 2
rotate first document

(changing setting vertical shots vertical)

for both egs, the save dialog pops up.

don't see any obvious problems... what you could try is to add a step where you save the file into the action and see if that is a possible workaround... don't have version 7 installed so can't test on my side...
