    Create a copy of the current document in a subfolder as the tiff format

    Shulipa Bernad Level 1

      Hello! This script creates a copy.jpg of the current document in the same folder with the name of the active layer. How do I modify this script so that it works as follows:

      • Whenever I run this script, a copy is no longer jpg but a copy.tiff of the current document with the name of the active layer inside a subfolder called "Rolad Prints"

      Script: Can anyone guide me? Thank you

          try {  
              #target photoshop;
