V10 Is Making It's Own File Names When Saving.jpg

Aug 2, 2012 11:36 AM

Hi,

I am having a problem when saving .jpg images to image-files folder. This program seems to have a mind of it;s own. Say if I save a file as cute-little-puppy.jpg and want to save the next image as cute-little-puppy-1, it will abbreviate as cute-lp.jpg. This is happening when I save for the web or save as.

Strange thing is I can work for about 10 minutes saving files as I like then it kicks over to doin it’s own thing?

 

Adobe Photoshop Elements Language Version: 10.0.0 (10.0 (20110914.m.17521))

Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit

Version: 6.1 Service Pack 1

Windows 7

DW intalled.

Any help will be appreciated!

    That is definitely very strange.

     

    Do you only see the new file name on the file on the hard drive? Or is the name suggested in the Save As window? Is this new name in the Tab/Title bar before saving?

     

    Where are you saving files to?

     

    Do you have any third-party plug-ins installed?

     

    Does this happen with other file types?

    The renaming seems rather sophicated if it's not merely being cut off at a certain point, but actually having initials kept. Elements doesn't do anything of the sort. There is often an embedded DOS name that is limited to 8 characters, but it's usually the first seven of the name and then a tilde (~).

     

    There would be no conflict with installing Photoshop and Photoshop Elements on the same computer.

    My guess was "DreamWeaver"

    It's a moot point, since the user no longer has the notebook PC and PSE, but if the name truncation was only appearing in "DW", that would be the place to troubleshoot....
