  • Just record File > Export > Save for web, then follow through the process to save one image. Then stop the action. Then you can just play the action each time you want to save.

You can just change your quick export preferences.

Change Quick Export preferences

By default, Quick Export generates assets as PNG with transparency and prompts you every time to select an export location. You can change these settings by selecting either Preferences > Export or File > Export > Export Preferences and then specifying the following:

Your preferred format for Quick Export: PNG, JPG, PNG-8, GIF, or SVG Format-specific parameters. For example, for PNG, you can specify if you want to export assets with Transparency enabled (32-bit) or export smaller-sized images (8-bit). Location for images exported using Quick Export. To do so, select one of the following: Ask Where To Export Each Time: Prompts you to select a location every time you export assets Export Files To An Assets Folder Next To The Current Document: Places the image asset in a subfolder named Assets within the folder containing the source Photoshop document.

Whether you want to include metadata—copyright and contact info—in the exported assets Whether you want to convert the assets to the sRGB color space
