I found a question and working answer here How to create an Automator service to convert images from one file type into another file type using the right-click contextual menu? but it is saving the output file to desktop only. I can understand that this can be saved to relative path(like if source file is in directory /Desktop/Resources/myImage the output file in path /Desktop/Resources/myImage/Converted) with some actions in automator like set value for viable etc. But I am not familiar with that. How to use the set value for variable and get value for variable.

    If no one does your work for you, feel free to edit in the code you have. It is far easier to point out a mistake than to teach someone to code from a problem statement of words. – bmike Sep 14 '15 at 16:57

You don't need to play with variables. When I configure the service as below, it makes a copy of the files (?!) when I use the New Folder action. Then it is a matter of converting the files in the new folder.
