    Whenever I try to save a copy of a psd file as a jpg file, it always append
    the string " copy" to the file name. E.g. abc.psd would have a default save
    filename "abc copy.jpg"

    Is there a way to tell it not to append " copy"?

  2. This only happens when the original file contains things that are not
    supported in JPEG, such as layers. And no, it cannot be turned off (but
    doesn't happen if you flatten the file first). It's to warn you that you
    do indeed save a (flattened) copy, not a JPEG-version of the original.

    Use "Save for Web" is one way. I also like the interface, though it strips
    things like EXIF data from the file for maximum efficiency in file size.
