Im currently using a script to do batch mockups. However it currently saves the file as 

Original PSD Name + Photo.jpg

Original PSD Name = "Mockup"

Photo = "P1"

 

Output = "Mockup_P1.jpg"

 

How do I make it so it's P1_Mockup.jpg as the output instead?

I am replying from my phone and haven't tested, however, you can try to replace the original save block with:

 

// Save JPG
                myDocument.saveAs((new File(thePath + "/" + theNewName + "_" + theName + ".jpg")), jpgSaveOptions, true,Extension.LOWERCASE);
