Hide file extension via rename
Authored by: ngb on Apr 05, '06 10:22:30AM

Photoshop is very strict when it comes to dealing with filename extensions. Having the wrong extension is even worse than having no extension. I think the programmers were being lazy, because a peek at the first several bytes of data in an image file will usually reveal what type it is (jpeg, tiff, etc.)

If you need to make contact sheets without filename extensions (and without having to rename everything), you probably need to create a custom script using javascript, which is a pain because the built in contact sheet action is so nice.
