It would be great if BRIDGE export presets would have an option to choose the file format extention .jpg NOT .jpeg
In BRIDGE when you go to TOOLS > PHOTOSHOP > IMAGE PROCESSOR it saves as .jpg
but if you use BRIDGE, EXPORT > FILE > EXPORT TO it saves as .jpeg, i need it to be .jpg
so, photoshop doesn't export as .jpeg so why does BRIDGE?
It causes a lot of syncing and confsuion prblems due to the .jpg (photoshop image processor). and .jpeg (bridge export to...)
Grrrrr.... Am i missing something here?
There is no known solution other than to batch rename your "jpeg" files with the new extension "jpg".
Why isn't this fixed with the latest version of bridge, for the love of all things holy?!?
Because its not broken. Both file extensions are valid and equivalent.
Wrong. When one is overwiting a file via a batch process, the extention matters. If the extension is different, the file isn't overwritten.
Yes, they are both valid. You can do a batch rename if its a problem.
Incorrect. A batch rename process will not deal with the two duplicate files. Which file will take precidence? This presents a clear problem, which I detailed. Simply being contraian is not helpful to this community.
@Wes Duenkel Exactly. Plus it doesn't take a lot of software development horsepower to provide a .jpg option when exporting. Some of the main galleries and repositories where I post my photos don't accept .jpeg, but they have no issue with .jpg.
Do better, Adobe.
It's indefensible not offering the choice and in addition it's an inconsistent, lazy implementation not to take this into consideration considering that both are widely used and that adobe has always defaulted to .jpg in the past.
People have systems and processes and these details do matter. Batch rename makes it worse, as it creates a duplicate if file allready exists which makes more and more mess.
Slow. Hand. Clap. for Adobe.
This needs fixing.
I have had to install a 3rd party batch file renamer. It is, as has been said, indefensible, that Adobe doesn't offer a .jpg option right off the bat in Bridge. Totally ridiculous, really.
It sounds like a small thing. It isn't. It completely nukes our process as we have systems that are setup for the .jpg extension. There is batch renaming in Bridge but if a file allready exists it will create a new one which trashes workflow as now online images are a mess.
Mark1S whcih 3rd party app are you using, does it have the above feature I need i.e. will overwrite what is there?
For those affected by this :
It's allready at11 votes.. top items seems to have about 30. Let's get this up there.
Yes that's the one. It is not a plugin for Bridge
It is absurd that Bridge forces all exports as JPEG for some unbeknownst reason. When we upload JPEG files to our online photo management system, they get corrupt. The tech support tells us their system only supports JPG extensions. Adobe, can you please change Bridge exports to utilize the JPG extension please? It is beyond my understanding why they'd use an extension which is no longer in use. My Mac OSX literally tells me that JPG is the correct extension and warns me when I try to rename any file into JPEG.
This is still stupid. I can't believe that a company like Adobe would allow this in the first place. Either always do one or the other or always do both... Its just silly to find out alter that my extensions are messed up. Yes, the batch tool in Bridge is a work around but it is bad practice that a workaround is required for somthing that Adobe can do... the problem is consistency. Please Adobe, fix these little issues.
I have THREE THOUSAND images I'm using Bridge to export to change a file size and append metadata. These images are called up from a number of SQL tables and ASPX pages to render on the website. I'm not changing tables and templates to this JPEG extension.
What a mess!
Come on, Adobe. Please allow JPG extensions.
It's been 2 years, it seems Adobe is not seeing this, or is just ignoring. LOL!
