Speeding Up the Slicing Action Even More..
Thanks to Roel for this addition!
After you’ve added the “Save for Web menu item”, instead of adding a new “Insert Menu Item Option” with “File Close”, just close the document and select “Don’t Save”.
This will also create a Close action but with option “Saving: no” added to it.
By creating the action like this, the only thing you need to do after starting the action is save the slice in the “Save for Web & Devices”. After hitting the “save button” you’ll return to your original Photoshop document without having to close the sliced document first.
