Photoshop help....
show user profile
When I save something in photoshop in another format, it add the word "copy" to the end of file name. How do I disable that "copy" word feature? It is anoying, I have to remove it manually everytime. Is there an option to turn that off?

Nope, that's just the way PS rolls (to my knowledge).. If you're saving a bunch of photos and want to get around naming them all individually, google photoshop actions, or photoshop batch.

Oddly enough... I've heard about this before, but don't have the problem myself. I get that little notification in the save window that says the file must be saved with "COPY"... but it's never actually added anything onto my filenames. Either it overwrites that of the same name, or it saves it exactly how I name it. So i've no idea what people are doing to get the "copy"... does sound rather annoying though.

I think that it's just a failsafe, as if you change the format and overwrite the file then you are screwed if you need to edit later. I've just tried it and it only comes up when changing the format ie: PSD to BMP etc. if you just do a save as keeping a .PSD you get the option.

Just an idea but it might help... Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!

"if you change the format and overwrite the file"

How do you overwrite a file if it is in different format now? extension is the part of the name, so it's not the same name.

Not related to the topic, but just noticed it :P

ooh, that might be something. I've always had extensions enabled on all my file types. Could that be what saves me from this copy... thing?

Aye, doesn't actually alter anything for me though. Copy or no copy... I get no "copy".
