    open windows explorer
    click tools
    click the tab labeled "view"
    scroll down about 1/2 way, and you will see a box that has no check in it, and
    the text to the right of the box says "Hide extensions for known file types" -
    click the box (putting a check mark inside it)
    click the "apply" button at the bottom right of the pop-up

    now you won't see the extensions any more

    Do you want to get rid of the extension .jpg? I don't know if that is possible
    in PS.

    You could use a program like if you are using
    Windows. That does the job - it can remove the extension in one step for all
    files in a folder.

    must this be an xxx.jpg?
    Or can it be any other jpg?

    while searching the Internet
    for XXX.jpg to see what the
    difference is

  5. The 'difference' is that the OP wants to eliminate the jpg, gif, psd, tif
    .... from being seen in PS.

    Hopefully PS can tell the type from the image header, but to me, it's
    nonsensible. Several other programs would crash !

    Do you wish to "get rid of," the extensions, or just not see them? If you do
    wish to eliminate them, then programs, like Na'Mo can batch Rename the files.
    I use it, plus SuperExplorer (usually to add extensions to truncated files-
    names from one of my Unix boxes), but have never needed to rid myself of the
    extensions. SuperExplorer can do it to whatever you wish, with "Replace
    Extension." I would urge you to backup all of these files BEFORE you do this,
    as many programs will not see them and be able to work with them. Also,
    Windows (if you are on that platform) will spend a good bit of time asking you
    what program you wish to Open the .xyx files with - some may work, others may

    If you just want to hide the extensions, then others have given you that info.

    In fact if you want to do the above then you can do it for free with the command prompt that can still be found under
    Accessories on XP. Something like the old DOS command "ren *.txt *.", for example, would remove the extension from all
    text files within the directory you were operating on. Back-up before trying this woulod be strongly advised.
