photoshop keeps clipping the file name on save

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by sarahandchris, Nov 19, 2003.

  1. Hi
    I have almost a 1000 images i need to reduce in size and 'save for web' with
    exactly the same file name. Trouble is some of these images have long names
    and photoshop (version 7) seems to clip the file name down when i save it.
    Big-Ben-748578436583474689.jpg Becomes Big-Ben-7485784365834746.jpg

    Is there a setting in photoshop I can change to stop it clipping the file
    name down?
    Many thanks,

    Yes. As these names won't work on some platforms that are likely to be
    encountered on the web, PS defaults to making the file names compatible
    with the "Save for Web" feature.
    Just use "Save As" (JPEG, as a copy) is the easiest way.

    Much better than "save as" is to change your default settings at "save for
    the web".

    Go to the "Save for the web" window, choose "Edit output settings", in the
    drop-down menu choose "Saving files" and change file compatibility to
    Windows checked only.

    Save these preferences, and your worries for the remaining 999 images should
    be gone.

    Not if you're using automation to re-save 1,000 images and want it to
    complete some time this week.
