I have to change a bunch of tgas into pngs. Is there a way to get photoshop to remember what I saved my last file as instead of me having to find the png setting each and every time. After about 200 of these it gets a bit tedious. I am on windows xp.
I tried an action but I couldnt get it the way i wanted. Is there a way to get it to ask you want you want name the file? Right now i can get it to save with no name but then I have to rename it before I can run the action again or it saves over top of it.
Here's my ideal wish. The files I want to save are all text to be used as supers in a tv program, I need to save them all as pngs. If I could get it to save them as pngs with a file name that matches the layer name that would make me weep with joy. Any help would be very appreciated.
Then make an action to save as all your files to the png file format, or use a utility if you have one to convert to .png.
Set your destination to a new folder so you don't overwrite your files. Check the box called Override action save as (this is most likely what you were missing and woudl liketaek a page to properly explain this.
Try to see if you can use the .psd since the script does not have .png availabel. Another recomendation is do not use bullet points /* or special characters as many conflict and will cause the action to fail. Underscore, parenthesis and dashes are safe to use.
