Kiska, when you go to Save for Web, one of your options after JPEG is WBMP, and then you've got a couple of options within that one. Not something you'd want to use often, but it's good to know it's there.

OH! I was 'saving as', not for the web. Thanks

This is an example of what I LOVE about the Internet... I had NO IDEA this function existed. How very cool.

Inspired, I created an action to simplify duplicating the effect.

The only problem...
The action must be modified before it will work on any computer (except mine). That's because Photoshop "hard codes" the file path specified when the Save for Web (Export) and Open commands are recorded. There's no way to make the path "generic."

Need a favor:
* Try the action
* Give me some feedback on the Readme instructions that explain how to customize it for your computer.

How would you change them?

Thanks, raniday... You just made my day!

Danny, I'm not very literate in this kind of stuff, but I'm glad I made your day

Hello Danny. Just tried your action and am already stumped. Mac, pscs.

Bear in mind I am not the brightest candle on the cake.

1. Had to make screen shots of stops 3,4,5. Couldn't remember instructions.
2. Can I now, after completing all stop steps, trash the unchecked Export & Open commands??

The action seems fine.

Thanks

Just ran it on a 2nd image, got the attached. Clicked 'cancel', and FIRST image I ran action with popped up. But the end result was on the 'active', 2nd image.

Great feedback and I sure appreciate it (and the screen shot).

1. Sorry about the screenshot hassle. Normally actions are distributed as .atn files (only), so the little messages (255 char max) are the only way to communicate info within an .atn set.

For the RP .zip I could include a Readme.txt to avoid that pain. I'll do that later today.

2. Yes, the unchecked commands can be deleted or you can leave them. They are harmless now.

3. Click OK to the "Replace?" dialog and all will be well.

Thanks for going the extra mile.

~Danny~

Great grunge-look, Bill on an appropriate coffee (with cream) looking backgrround. Starbucks,, whose HQ in Seattle, would be pleased.
