I'm slightly confused...

Lets say you have a file:

originalFILEname.psd

The script will dupe/flatten and rename, should the result be:

originalFILEname-Suffix

or

originalFILEname- Suffix

or

originalFILEname - Suffix

or

{originalFILEname}-Suffix

etc?

Can you please provide more detailed info?

Are you Mac or Win based?

I'm on Windows 10.

Where is the rename script?

If I use IMAGE > DUPLICATE it will add copy at the end of it. If I change

it then when I run the action it will apply same name to each file. Which

is not what I want.

A rename script will need to be written for your exact requirements, which is why answering specific questions is required if somebody is going to help, without wasting time.

Otherwise search the scripting forum and see what you come up with yourself and then the forum can help refine the existing code, however, the forum will still need to know specifics.

Will the suffix be fixed or do you need to type in a new variable suffix each time?

Oh I see. Sorry about that.

If I have a file that is ORIGINAL.psd

Rename script should be

ORIGINAL-Suffix.psd

Suffix would need to be able to change with whatever I need.

Does that make sense?

That does make sense!

Do you wish to keep the original file open, or do you wish to close the original file? If close, save before closing or not?

A script is required. The script can be set to use a custom keyboard shortcut, or you can run the script from an action using the action shortcut.

Here you go, try this code:

#target photoshop

// Dupe Original File with -Suffix.jsx

var origDoc = app.activeDocument

var baseName = origDoc.name.replace(/\.[^\.]+$/, '');

var sep = String ("-");

var suffix = prompt("Enter Suffix:", "Suffix");

var dupeName = baseName + sep + suffix;

origDoc.duplicate((dupeName), true);

// Optional Step: remove the // comment characters to enable

origDoc.close(SaveOptions.DONOTSAVECHANGES); // (SaveOptions.SAVECHANGES)

Copy the 10 lines of code above, paste into a plain text editor (not a word processor), then save the plain text file with a .jsx extension, ensuring that it only has .jsx and NOT a double extension such as .jsx.txt

Then drop the file into your application/program folder for Photoshop/Presets/Scripts and restart Photoshop.

Apologies, remove lines 9 & 10 from my previous post or change line 10 to include the double forward // comment slashes to disable the code:

Hmmm, this does not match my results on a Mac using CC2018, I don't get the word copy:

You can change the prompt text yourself...

Just change the original line 6 from:

var suffix = prompt("Enter Suffix:", "Suffix");

To:

var suffix = prompt("Enter Filename:", "");

I used to have a website, it became too much work, I just use Blogger now – but the Google robot keeps flagging my site for Phishing and every few days it gets taken down, then I appeal and Google reply that it is a mistake... This has happened about 10 times over the last month or so. I honestly don't know why/how they think that there is something suspicious going on, but it is impossible to talk to Google/Blogger directly on this issue:

I forgot to mention, the "prompt" method is quick-n-dirty as I did not have time to use proper scriptUI code, so if you hit cancel the script continues to run, just without the custom suffix text which would be replaced with a "null" value. I am only a beginner at scripting, so I have a long way to go.

P.S. I found that despite the duplicate command including a flattening step, that some files were not flattening, so you may wish to add the following line of code at the end of the script:

app.activeDocument.flatten();

Ah, feature creep! I suppose you will end up wanting it to make you a cup of coffee in the morning too! :]

Just kidding...

Anything is possible, however it may not be probable when my scripting level is taken into account.

Search the forums for a script example and I'll let you know!

There may be a simpler "fit image" script out there, however this was the first one I found, an edit by the late Mike Hale. I just grafted it onto the end of my original script. Enter the same target pixel size into both fields and the longer edge will be resized to the target value, with the shorter edge proportionally scaling.

#target photoshop

// Dupe Original File with -Suffix.jsx

var origDoc = app.activeDocument

var baseName = origDoc.name.replace(/\.[^\.]+$/, '');

var sep = String ("-");

var suffix = prompt("Enter Suffix:", "");

var dupeName = baseName + sep + suffix;

origDoc.duplicate((dupeName), true);

app.activeDocument.flatten();

// Optional Step: remove the // comment characters to enable

// origDoc.close(SaveOptions.DONOTSAVECHANGES); // (SaveOptions.SAVECHANGES)

Thanks stephen  so the one with the link didn't work well for me, 

I am wanting a dialog to come up (like on the naming one) as well that says "How many pixels do you want the long edge to be?   I would like to avoid the Fit Image Dialog altogether ,  

also when I tried the super long code you gave me , it gave me this error.   2019-06-20 10_22_34-Adobe Photoshop CC 2019.jpg

The modified Adobe Fit Image script code that I found worked fine in CC2018, I can understand the error message but not sure why you get it (version issue, copy/paste issue etc). Not worth bothering with if you wish to avoid fit image anyway in preference of a single field.

The link above uses a hard-coded resolution for the longest edge, which needs to be swapped out for a variable and a prompt or a proper GUI entry field.

As I said earlier, if you can find the code you like for the longest edge resize, then it should just be a case of adding at the end of my script.

EDIT: Try this code, it is basic with no error checking, but it should get the job done –

#target photoshop

// Dupe Original File with -Suffix.jsx

var origDoc = app.activeDocument

var baseName = origDoc.name.replace(/\.[^\.]+$/, '');

var sep = String("-");

var suffix = prompt("Enter Suffix:", "");

var dupeName = baseName + sep + suffix;

origDoc.duplicate((dupeName), true);

app.activeDocument.flatten();

// Optional Step: remove the // comment characters to enable

// origDoc.close(SaveOptions.DONOTSAVECHANGES); // (SaveOptions.SAVECHANGES)

// https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1031437

// make document square with the document’s longer side’s length;

// 2012, use it at your own risk;

if (app.documents.length > 0) {

    var myDocument = app.activeDocument;

    var originalRulerUnits = preferences.rulerUnits;

    preferences.rulerUnits = Units.PIXELS;

    // set a simple GUI prompt for the longest edge value

    var longestEdge = prompt("Enter Longest Edge Dimension in Pixels:", "");

    // get longer side;

    var theFactor = longestEdge / getTheLonger(Number(myDocument.width), Number(myDocument.height));

    // resize;

    myDocument.resizeImage(myDocument.width * theFactor, myDocument.height * theFactor, myDocument.resolution, ResampleMethod.BICUBIC);

    // reset;

    preferences.rulerUnits = originalRulerUnits;

} else {};

function getTheLonger(a, b) {

    if (a >= b) {

        var x = a

    } else {

        var x = b

    };

    return x;

};
