Dear all,
I develop an action in Photoshop 5 to generate 10 different sizes of a given SourcePicture.jpg

in each resize action I "save for web" the resulted picture
But I need to give the resulted picture a name like this: 170--50_50--fixedcaracter.jpg

where the first part ( 170) is the original file name ( 170.jpg)
the second part ( 50_50) is the picture size ( which is changed with each save action )
the third part is fixed name


thanks in advance.

Install the free Image Processor Pro which is way better that the image processor included in photoshop itself (Watch the Video) ....
http://russellbrown.com/scripts.html

Create 10 actions, one for each resizing (you've probably done this already).

Then run Image Processor Pro for each of the 10 actions....
File > Automate > Image processor Pro

Set your source and destination folders.
Set one of the 10 saved Photoshop actions that you have already saved.
Choose what you want to rename photos to.  Use the image size as custom text ..... e.g....
Document Name + 50x50 + FixedCharacter + extension
("FixedCharacter" is also custom text that you require).

Then RUN

You can save the 10 sets of Image Processor Pro settings for future use.

You can reduce this to just one run by creating a new set (+) for each image size within Image processor Pro, which is your perfect solution. Sets appear as Tabs in Image Processor Pro.
Document Name + 50x50 + FixedCharacter + extension
Document Name + 75x75 + FixedCharacter + extension
Document Name + 100x100 + FixedCharacter + extension
etc.

Remember to save the above Image Processor Pro settings for future use.
You can reload them when necessary.

NOTE: You don't have to use photoshop actions at all.
Image Processor Pro can do the resizing and renaming all in one go.
