How To Remove .jpg extensions in Bridge Galleries

Feb 9, 2012 8:24 AM

Tags: #flash #bridge #extension #jpg #removal #galleries

I am not sure why Adobe Bridge, which created Flash Galleries keeps .jpg extensions in the file name, but I would like to remove them.

 

This was never an issue in versions prior to CS 5.5.

 

When I open flash and try to remove the .jpg extension the files are not recognized by Bridge any longer.

 

What's even worse, is once the Flash Gallery is created in the htm file, the .jpg extensions still remain in the name portion. Kinda dumb since the photos are now part of an htm Flash Gallery, and no longer a .jpg file.

 

Is there any work around this?

 

Thanks in advance.

    Believe that is an OS thing.  Find option in OS to "do not show extensions".

    Rather than rant at a User to User forum, it might be best to make a feature request to remove the extensions.

    http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family

     

    Other people can then vote on the request and maybe you will get your wish?

    Paul,

     

    For some reason in CS 5.5 the option to hide or include the extension of the filename in the Output Module for Web gallery has been removed while the PDF setting still has this option. It might be a good thing for the OP to add it as a bug instead of a Feature Request

    Don't know if this helps but regarding to my earlier posts it seems the option for not showing extensions in Web Gallery only works when in HTML gallery template.

    One way I found to remove the file extension was to modify the group.xml file located in the resources folder.  In that file you will find the folowing code for each image within the gallery:

     

    For each image you should get the following code similar to this:

     

    <item>

            <title>5 May Cruisers v Jets 2 1.JPG</title>

            <description />

            <metadata></metadata>

            <photographer></photographer>

            <copyright></copyright>

            <imageId image='' dbtype='' dbname='' />

            <mediaType category='image' format='jpeg' />

            <renditions>

                <rendition src='images/large/_4124014343.jpg' height='666' width='1000' size='large' />

                <rendition src='images/medium/_4124014343.jpg' height='666' width='1000' size='medium' />

                <rendition src='images/thumb/_4124014343.jpg' height='16' width='24' size='thumb' />

            </renditions>

        </item>

     

    If you  remove the .JPG extension within the <title></title> tags  the gallery will display the name without it. HOWEVER the kicker for me at the moment is that it will only display as it should when testing locally. As soon as I upload to my web page server the images will not display. All other info such as site name, gallery name, styles etc. display correctly.

     

    I'm at a loss as to why changing the title causes it to fail when uploaded yet works as it should locally.
