Great minds think alike, even if we don't know what we're talking about
Have you tried it with a gif or png to see if it will work that way?
Create your action for Save for Web using whatever default folder you want, for example C:\test
then open the action and go down to the last line where it shows C:\test or whatever name you used. You should get a hand with a pointy finger Double-click on C:\test (or whatever)
The Save for Web window will open. Click on Save. When the window opens to Save, navigate to the folder where you want your files to go. Click Save.
When you go back to the action, the location is changed.
I know that the problem rests in the fact that Save for Web is slightly different from an ordinary save. It always retains the address of the last place you saved as opposed to the regular save, which picks up whatever folder the picture is in that you're saving. If I could figure out how to do such a thing, I'd place a stop in the save process, making it halt right at the place where the folder is chosen.
Maybe I can find a script out there someplace written by someone who also got very annoyed, but unlike me, knew how to write a script.
