Help writing a Photoshop action.

I have written an action for inserting a signature file in an image. I have created both a black text and a white text png files, in different fonts, to "place" into an image. My action works as expected except for one issue.

How can I add a command to my action that will ensure I am always in the folder that contains my signatures. The action stops for the place command at the last folder opened and this is not always the correct folder.

My Action:
Action: JodySignature
Place
C:\Users\Floyd\CTMH\Signatures\BSMT-white.png
Center: center
Translate: 0 inches, 0 inches
Transform
Center: center
Translate: -0.006 inches, 0.001 inches
Width: 99.8%
Height: 99.8%
Flatten Image

I need this action to stop at the Signatures folder and let me select the correct .png file and then continue. It does stop and wait until I make my selection, but is not always in the correct folder.
What am I missing?

-- hide signature --

Newbie, having fun.

Record:
Open sig file.
Select all. Copy. Close. Paste.
It will record where the sig file is kept.

You can record it to place the file and it should do the same thing.

Just write two actions, one for the white sig and one for the black sig, instead of trying to make it complicated.
