Auto Resolve Criteria

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Dennis Hughes, Feb 23, 2005.

  1. When I drag an image into another folder and that folder already has an
    image with the same name, the auto resolve dialogue box appears asking if I
    want PS to make the decision for me.

    What criteria is used for the auto resolve?

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    Auto Resolve works like this: If both files are exact duplicates of each
    other (i.e. the same resolution, color mode, image size, etc.i.e. you just
    copy a file in one folder, move it to another folder and give it the exact
    same name as the original file, then try to make a copy of the original file
    in the folder with the copy of the same name in it) Photoshop will copy the
    file to the folder and give the copied file a new name. The same thing
    happens if you try to move or copy a different image to a folder that
    already has an image with the same name in it (even though the two images
    that have the same name may be entirely different, Photoshop moves the file
    or makes a copy of it in the folder you specify and gives that file a new
    name). By the way, it took me about 2 minutes of playing around with
    Photoshop to figure this out, even though there's nothing about it in the
    manual or in the online help file.

  3. Thanks for the help. What if one file is older than the other?

    Does it keep the older or newer? Guess I will do some digging like you did.
    Good idea.
