I've created an action to sharpen. It runs fine and saves to the output folder. Only problem is it starts with pic 1 and then jumps to 10 and then to 100. It runs from 100 all the way through the rest. Any ideas why? I didn't record that way. Thanks.

Just write the action to work on one file and run it from within file/scripts/image processing. Then you can use the action on just one file or a thousand.

Are you talking about the order that it runs on files? If so then it's irrelevant. It happens because of the way the filename sorting's done - alphabetic vs numeric.

Good catch, Tim! That drives me nuts sometime -- to run a process or download to a Web site and then find that my number extensions are all messed up from that!

I wonder if that's the OPs problem?

Thanks for the replys. Tim, I didn't know that but all my files are named FD2009-1, FD2009-2 all the way to FD2009-240 so alphabetic shouldn't make a difference. Am I missing your point? Thanks again for help. Is there anyway to keep this from happening as the picture are to be in a certain sequence? Plus I still don't really understand why it goes from 1 to 10 to 100 and goes from 100 and stayed in order before I stopped at about 115. File size have anything to do with it?

You need to describe your problem more clearly, I don't know what the issue is.

When I picked my source file to run my action, why does it not go in numerical order? My files are all named the same thing except at the end where the number goes 1,2,3,4,5..... I wouldn't think alphabetical order would be an issue. When I ran the action, it went from file 1 to file 10 and then to file 100 skipping all in between. After it hits 100, it seems to stay in numerical order but I've never let it finish. I stopped it around file 120 and it had stayed in order. I hope this is a little more clear.

lemme take a stab...your files end with a number (1,2,3,4,5...10,11,12.​..101,102,103), correct? if this is the case ALL images that begin with a 1 will go first - 1, 10, 100, 101, 102, 103, etc...AFTER all the images that begin with 1 have been processed it would go to 2...so 2, 20, 200, 201, 202, etc...

if your images were numbered with 3-digit codes, they would be numeric...001, 002, 003, etc...

I think you've got it there thaking - that's almost certainly the cause of the OP's problem. It's always safer to save the files with three-digit codes.

Put all the files in one folder and use the suggestion I offered earlier....

I already told you the answer, and thaking expanded on it. Really what are obsessing about? The point of a batch job is photos are all processed the same way, the order doesn't matter. Since the output will have the same name as the input if you're written your action correctly this is irrelevant.

For the pedants, name your files xyz0001 not xyz1

and if you think you're going to have 10's of thousands of images, use 5 numbers (xyz00001)...sorry tim, just wanted to expand again. ;)

Tim, Tony, I always appreciate your help. Thaking, you made the light bulb come on. I don't use actions very much and I just assumed it went 1- whatever. Poloman, I'll have to check more into what you mentioned. Thanks for all the help.

Boog, take a test batch numbering from 1-20 and run it. If we are correct, you will see the sequence processing like this:

1,10,11,12,13,14,15...​2,20,3,4,5,6...9

no problem...i remembered this because as a software designer we were working on a project...we labeled some files 1-whatever and then did some stuff to these files...well, we were baffled at first because it was taking them out of order...then we realized we needed to number them 001, 002 and so on...

so it's not always so obvious at first, but once someone mentions it you're like "oh yeah, that makes sense."

good luck!
