- Telling Photoshop to stop adding the "copy" suffix to filenames...

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Jon J. Yeager, Mar 14, 2005.

  1. Is there any way to tell Photoshop to stop adding a "copy" suffix to saved
    filenames when they're being saved "as a copy"?

    Yes ... use 'Save As ...' and enter a new filename.

    R___.S___.D_____. forgot that "Save Copy" FLATTENS just for the copy, while
    "Save As" requires flattening before several formats are available.

    It is about the .copy suffix.

    Exactly, which made RSD's answer immaterial as well as requiring extra steps
    to save a COPY!

    Takes only a minute to strip off the _copy (btw - it's not a suffix as it's
    "_copy" not ".copy")

    Actually, that is not quite right. "_copy" is just as much of a suffix
    as what ".copy" would be. A suffix is basically an object tagged on the
    end of a word. If you want a bracket after each letter, eg. a) b) c),
    then the bracket is acting as a suffix.

    :)

    I think we agree.

    More like a second, but that's still far too long if you have to do it
    over and over again all day long. It doesn't happen in CS by the way, at
    least not on my Mac.
