What's the easiest way to convert an image from PNG to JPG ..?

I've created an action for that (see attached image), but I'm not able to save the JPG version in the same directory as the original image.

Please help   thanks in advance.Snap 2012-10-15 at 10.40.31.png

If the Action is run manually then it'll save the JPEG in the folder specified in the Action ("Downloads" in this case). The Action has to be run by Batch command for the destination folder to be overriden by the folder of an arbitrary original file.

Hi. This forum is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop.  I'm moving your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum for specialized attention to your situation.

Anonna, are you automating the conversion of files or just trying to make a shortcut for saving the currently open document to JPEG and closing the document?

Im trying to get the action to work on the current picture in view (the picture that is open in photoshop and im looking at it)

Im aware that if i did it as a batch process it would save in the location of the original picture.

But if its possible i'd like to have the Action convert the current open image from PNG to JPG... (and also delete the PNG version in the process, if possible)

Do you get any kind of error message when trying to save the jpegs to the path in your action?

What happens when you run the action?

If the Action is run manually then it'll save the JPEG in the folder specified in the Action ("Downloads" in this case). The Action has to be run by Batch command for the destination folder to be overriden by the folder of an arbitrary original file.

I was thinking if Anonna was saving jpegs to the folder that only had pngs and not already a jpeg version of the same file, that maybe either the folder is no longer there or some kind of permissions issue is

preventing the saving to that folder.

If a jpeg of the same name already exists, then it should still save because the jpeg action is set to With Copy which should still save with copy added to the file name.

If the jpeg on the same name with copy exists then the action should save over the copy version.

Anonna didn't say if they were using just the action or batch/image processor to save the files using the action.

Can I run Batch processes say if I have 15 PNG images open? (Run the batch process only on images currently open in photoshop)

Yes, the following Action and Batch will save a JPEG and close each open document.

You can record a further Action to run the Batch, and assign a function key to that.

Y'know, blurring stuff out just makes people want to test their forensics skills, and there are tools and techniques for revealing action names like "Molten Lead, Sepia Toning (layer)" and others. 

By the way, try out the Image Processor script (I think it's in the File - Automate menu).  For advanced stuff, Image Processor Pro is available from Russell Brown.
