Sounds like you have to run multiple actions. When you're recording an action, it doesn't look like you can use "Revert" as one of the commands.

So you run Action 1 on the source folder to get Output Size 1. Then you run Action 1 on the same source folder to get Output Size 2, and so on.

yep thats what i thought. So i need to run a action everytime i need a differed size. –  juistm Mar 7 '13 at 11:24

But you can add both actions to a batch job. –  e100 Mar 7 '13 at 14:10
    
@e100 How? Do you combine both actions into one? I don't see a spot to add more than one action in the dialog. –  Lauren Ipsum Mar 7 '13 at 15:09
    
It's ages since I've done it and am away from PC. Yes, I think you combine both actions into one new one. –  e100 Mar 7 '13 at 16:20

@Lauren Ipsum, in CS6 I managed to use Revert as a command in an action: enter image description here

The trick is to save as a copy through the Save As dialog (or press Ctrl+Alt+S which will force save as a copy mode).

Additionally in the Batch window you should include a serial number to ensure files do not overwrite each other. As a result files will be named in a really strange way (the same serial will be appended to the file name many times e.g. Filename02020202.jpg for the fourth Save command) but at least this works.

Huh! I tried doing exactly that (save as) and I couldn't get Revert to show up. I also assumed that the OP would be saving each set to a different result folder, rather than stuffing everything into one folder with different file names. That would make me nuts, but I suppose it depends on your workflow. –  Lauren Ipsum Mar 7 '13 at 15:05

The catch with Save as is that the saved file starts to be considered as the original document and thus you cannot revert. But if you check As a Copy checkbox it doesn't happen. –  Const Mar 7 '13 at 15:09
    
Oh THERE it is. That's clever! –  Lauren Ipsum Mar 7 '13 at 15:10
    
When i use multiple Save command in the action, and use Batch, the problem @Const described happens to me too. The filename gets weird. I've tried using As a Copy option on the Save command in the action but doesn't work. What he does is for each file on source folder, he put the increment number, instead putting the increment number on each Save command of the action. Anyone solved this? –  wjamaral Nov 19 '13 at 13:01
