Photoshop: Page number is included in file name when saving an image from a PDF

This is a problem I had in Photoshop CS4, didn't have in Photoshop CC, and is now back in Photoshop CC (2014).

I create snapshots of PDF files for a website that is updated weekly. I open each pdf in Photoshop and choose the page I want to create the image from. Then I run a batch automation on all of the open files. This saves all my images in a folder. The problem is - I need the images to have the same name as the pdf file I have created them from - WITHOUT the page number.

Interestingly, Photoshop CC did not include the page number when opening a PDF. For awhile it was smooth sailing for me. :-)

As long as the page number is included in the title, I cannot run my batch without stopping to change the title before saving. It would be nice if I had some control over how the file name is created when I open pdfs. Maybe I do and I'm not aware of it?

Thanks for listening!

Other users want the page number - otherwise they open 80 images (pages) with the same name. CC did not include the page number due to a bug in the PDF rasterization code, and that bug was fixed.

Well, for me that's a bit of a bummer. How about allowing the user to decide?
