Hey all,

I’m looking to make a script that will allow me to save a jpeg of an image I’m working on, and each time I use the shortcut it saves the images in a sequence instead of overwriting the same file. Then I’d like to turn that into a keyboard shortcut. It’s so I can make a higher res movie of my process then recording my screen would give. Not to mention the file is so big that it already uses up a lot of resources.

I did this with a project last year and have somehow already forgotten how to get it to work, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi TonyFotiArt
There may be a simpler way to do this yet these steps should do it.
1) Duplicate Image (will create a copy with different default name) You have to turn off the interactive dialog
2) Use Shift +Ctrl + tab to jump back to prior image tab
3) Save that image
4) Close that time
The newly duplicated image tab should now be active

I did not try this out yet I think it should work in an Action
Hope this helps or at least gives you an idea on approach
