Hi ajidehak.

I still believe my script does what you request. Can you describe what it is doing wrong? Can you describe how you go about activating it?

Thanks,
--Shift Studio.

I have also tried shift studio's script and it makes an exact duplicate for me. It doesn't put in any copy1, copy2, or dupe2. That only would happen when you save the file. Then the computer wants needs some kind of a difference so as to be able to differentiate one file from another. A computer will not allow you to have two files with the same name in the same Folder. You can save it into another Folder with the same name tho.

Duplicate your original folder.

Run your action on images in the DUPLICATED folder and set destination to "SAVE AND CLOSE".

This way the word "copy" will only be in the title of your FOLDER.

If you are using this script that was posted in this thread; "Dup Without Copy.jsx.zip", then something else must be wrong. It worked fine on my computer using Adobe Photoshop CS4 & CS5.

I cannot figure it out. Sorry.

Re: duplicate image without copy name is on the pr

This thread is getting way, way more complicated than it ever needed to be, plus Mistermonday came up with the simplest, most logical solution quite a while back - save the file in a new folder. The horse is already dead, stop beating it.

I agree no more can be accomplished here.

Re: duplicate image without copy name is on the pr

from what i can understand from reading your posts, you want to duplicate the image in photoshop without the word (copy) on the duplicate. I made a test action to do this but it keeps the same name on every photo. if there is someone here that is proficient in using variables maybe they can show you how to replace the name with the original photo using a variable. All i did was start recording an action went to image duplicate image when the file name box comes up I delete the word copy, leaving the original name. Only problem is when you run the action on another photo it keeps the name that was recorded in the action, ie, (original name (orange)) (duplicate name (orange)), new photo run action (original name (apple)) (duplicate name(orange)). This could probably be fixed with the use of a variable, but i haven't worked with them and don't know exactly how to use them. When saving you will have to save to a different folder or change the name of the duplicate file.
Hope this helps.

Re: duplicate image without copy name is on the pr

I agree with holgaman.... This is getting way more complicated than it should be....

You should edit your action (or record a new one) WITHOUT the first part, "duplicate image". An action does exactly what you tell it to do. It's making a copy of each image, therefore adding the word "copy" to each file.

To remove PART of an action, drag it to the trash can icon at the foot of the actions palette...

Here's a link that explains editing an action:

http://www.adobepress.com/articles/a...34249&seqNum=5

And in the same article, a link that explains how to create your own action:

http://www.adobepress.com/articles/a...34249&seqNum=3

Once I've created an action, this is what I do:

Let's say I have a folder called "new images"...

1. Duplicate the folder called "new images".
A new folder called "new images copy" will be created. It contains the EXACT same files with the exact same file names and extension.
2. In Photoshop, choose automate/batch.
3. Select desired action from drop down menu (make sure that the action doesn't duplicate your image)
4. Source: Folder
5. Choose folder (in my case, "new images copy")
6. Destination: Save and close

Done. Very simple... I use this all the time for resizing images.

Good luck!
