Examples of valid and invalid chains of sub actions

Overview

Practical examples that illustrate how to and how not to configure actions.

Do's and Don'ts

As described in a preceding topic it is important to make sure that the order in which the sub actions are performed is correct. If a sub action chain is not valid, a warning will normally appear when you try to use the action. Note that even if a sub action chain is formally valid, it may still not produce the desired result. We advise you to try executing the action on some suitable test files before using it in a production environment.

Examples of Valid and Invalid Chains

  • Resize
  • Color management
  • File format
  • FTP Upload

This is a valid sequence. The image is saved temporarily (using the File format sub action) after the three image processing sub actions, then uploaded to a server using the FTP Upload sub action.

 

  • Resize
  • Color management
  • FTP Upload
  • File format

This is an invalid chain. The image must be saved before you can upload it to a server using FTP. This means that you must add one of the two save sub actions (i.e. Save file or File format).

Solution: Change the sequence to Resize – Color Management – File Format – FTP Upload

 

  • Resize
  • File format
  • Color management
  • FTP Upload

This is an invalid chain. The image must be saved directly before the FTP Upload sub action.

Solution: Move File Format down so that the chain reads: Resize – Color Management – File Format – FTP Upload
