Can anyone help me with a little problem please. I use an Olympus E5 shooting RAW and JPG, I open the ORF file in Camera Raw, make adjustments and the try to save the adjusted as a JPG using the same file name with the addition of a single letter, for instance "a" , so that any future adjustments can be saved with the letter "b" and so on through the alphbet. I like to keep the original camera JPG file. When I try to save the JPG file in the same folder it is saved as a file that will not open. I can save the file with a different name in the same folder but this will not be with the original ORF and original camera JPG. Is there away of saving an adjusted JPG file using the original file name with a suffix "a" in the original folder with the original ORF file and the original camera jpg file? I would be gratefull for any help. Many Thanks

Hi
I am using Windows 7 64 bit and cs6 64 bit.
I have discovered that if I save the file, for instance, 070712_Gold Finch.Desford_0001 (this is the original name) and then add a.. and hit save, it saves ok, or a. and type jpg it again saves ok, saving to the original folder with the original ORF and JPG.

Hi

I am using Adobe Photoshop CS6 version 13.0 x64.

I upgraded Adobe CS4 Extended with the CS6 Photoshop Upgrade.

Installed the upgrade on top of the CS4, had the problem, so uninstalled all of CS4 Extended and CS6, new install of Photoshop CS6 on its own, still had same problem, hence my contact.

Alright, your description is still a bit confused.

Are you saving the JPEG from ACR, Photoshop, or SFW?

Even if you kept the original name and added the JPEG file extension, you should be able to save that alongside the RAW (.ORF) file. (people do this all the time)

Hi

From Bridge I open the RAW (.ORF) file into ACR, adjust, open the adjusted file into Photoshop further adjust then save as, select format JPEG, add suffix "a" to file name click save the file is then saved as what looks like a piece of paper with turned down corner.

By typing ..a or a.jpg the file saves OK along side the original ORF and camera JPEG.

What is the file extension shown before you type your name change?
What is the file extension of the saved file that "looks like a piece of paper with turned down corner. "?

Hi

I did a test shot to obtain file name direct from the camera, which was _7093257.jpg before renaming.

Renamed the file " test" in the downloader , opened the ORF file through ACR into Photoshop, saved with a suffix "a" and, low and behold the file was saved with the suffix in the same folder as the original ORF file and the camera JPG.

Re did the download renamed the file Gold Finch.Desford, as before, opened through ACR into Photoshop, saved with suffix "a" and the file saved like a piece of paper with turned down corner, it has no file extension.

So looked at it and thought it perhaps did not like the dot between Finch and Desford, changed it to underscore.
" Gold Finch_Desford ", through the same process to save as in photoshop with a file name of " 070912_Gold Finch_Desford_0001a " and, success, saved along with the ORF and camera JPG in the same folder with jpg file extension.

I don`t know why but I some how changed from using under score to using a dot between names and places ect. when using multiple identifications.

I think with your prompting and making me use my brain to look at the problem in a different way has solved my dilemma.

Many Thanks

You changed your file extension to .Desford

To the computer, everything after the last . in the filename denotes the file type. Changing the letters after the . is a bad idea, unless you really know what you're doing.

Hi

What can I say?

I had been typing dates with dots between, then I must have had a seniour moment, just carried on with the dots into the file naming, typing dots became the norm, the under score forgotten, even when I looked at my previous files I did`nt notice the difference.

However now its sorted, again many thanks.
