    Save JPG copy to specific path

    tricktionary

      Hi,

      I want to link an action to a key so that when i click, it saves the PSD that i am working on, but additionally saves a JPG copy in full resolution low quality (to share through dropbox) to a specific folder.

      since i have a huge amount of subfolders where the PDS's are placed, i'd need to mirror that folder structure exactly in the dropbox folder.

       

      So at first i found a script that i think can be used to save - here:

      https://forums.adobe.com/thread/594393

       

      the code would be:

      var doc = app.activeDocument;  var Path = doc.path;  var Name = doc.name.replace(/\.[^\.]+$/, '');   var Suffix = "";  var saveFile = File(Path + "/" + Name + Suffix + ".jpg");  SaveJPEG(saveFile, 1);    function SaveJPEG(saveFile, jpegQuality){  jpgSaveOptions = new JPEGSaveOptions();  jpgSaveOptions.embedColorProfile = true;  jpgSaveOptions.formatOptions = FormatOptions.STANDARDBASELINE;  jpgSaveOptions.matte = MatteType.NONE;  jpgSaveOptions.quality = jpegQuality;  activeDocument.saveAs(saveFile, jpgSaveOptions, true,Extension.LOWERCASE);  }

       

      But now i am at the problem of the path.

      its kind of like the PSD has folder: E:\Project\Fullstorage\folder1\subfolder1\file.psd

      while the JPG should be saved to something like D:\Dropbox\Project\Fullstorage\folder1\subfolder1\file.jpg

       

      my string editing scripting skills aren't that good yet, anyone a suggestion on how to do this?

      thanks!
