I'm trying to record a set of actions that includes a save command that saves the file in the same folder (regardless of where the file is) with a suffix. The process for each filename would be:
1. Drag filename.png onto a droplet
2. Do stuff
3. Save file.png as filename_new.png in the same directory as the original
I haven't figured out if it's possible to do this without scripting (haven't learnt this part yet). With actions I either overwrite the existing file with the changes or set the output location to save to a specific folder. Is it possible to ignore the location and save in the same directory but with a change to the filename instead of overwriting the existing file? It would be useful if I were to distribute the droplet without worrying if that directory exists or not.
Any help is much appreciated.
