Re: duplicate image without copy name is on the pr

If I understood you correctly, you just have to hold down the [Alt]/[Opt] key while selecting "Image"-"Duplicate". This will suppress the dialog box.

Re: duplicate image without copy name is on the pr

In any application or operating system you can not have 2 files with the same identical name. If your intent is to modify the duplicate so that you can preserve the original file, the way to proceed is to modify the original and at the end of the action do a File>Save As. Then you can save the file with the exact same name but in a different folder / location or you can save the file in the same location as the orig but change the file name.

It has been answered. Your program (Photoshop, or whatever software you are using) can not work on two files with the exact same name at the same time.

If I understand what you want it is this-you want to have the action save the file that has been worked on with the same name of the original file, correct? If that is so and if it could be done, you would have to overwrite the original file with the newly created one, thereby losing the original file.

I do not have that much knowledge about creating actions to know if an action can be created that allows one to "REPLACE" the original file, like I do sometimes when it seems necessary for some other reason than using an action.

Maybe someone who is familiar with creating actions can figure this out for us. Danny?

Ajidehak

I put together this Javascript to duplicate the active document and give it the same name (no 'copy')
It can be called in Actions, or Batch with Action. Put it in '~Photoshop/Presets/Scripts' and restart Photoshop.

Hope this helps.
