I am trying to find a way to save my image file as a jpeg and add -web or -print to the existing file name. This way I can easily see which files are lower resolution for web posting or high resolution for printing.
to give a little more information on what I would like to accomplish, two files of the same image, one with a logo set to a low resolution so that it can be emailed or posted online easily. The other file is set to maximum resolution without a logo that way it can be printed if desired. example shoot123-web.jpg and shoot123-print.jpg.
I've been pounding at the SFW idea,but not getting it to work. What you want can probably be accomplished with an action or script,but that's beyond what I know. Perhaps better minds can work it out. Sorry Jason, I thought I had solved it.
I helped somebody do a very similar thing about a week ago.
The trick is to use the Batch command's ability to construct a file name.
Tell the batch to append, e.g. "-x" without quotes, to the name of each saved file.
The batch runs an Action which does a save as JPEG, resize image, add logo, save as JPEG, then close document.
The output is "<document name>-x.jpg" and "<document name>-x-x.jpeg".
Then use Windows Explorer to rename "*-x-x.jpg" to "*-print.jpg".
Then rename "*-x.jpg" to "*-web.jpg".
The name construction that I used there was just an "x" appended to the document name. Use whatever you like. Also juliew subsequently referred to the method as a "double-batch" run, although it is not. One run of the batch will output two JPEGs for each input document.
I hope the disagreements in that thread don't cause too much disruption.
If you want, the Batch command itself can be recorded in another Action which would store the parameters of the batch, then you could run that Action anytime without having to set up the details of the batch each time. It would always output to one specific folder, though.
