exporting image to gif format
Posted on 1998-10-06
I have created an Action that exports a non-gif image to gif format. During the recording, the gif image was saved in folder C:\Temp, the same folder that has the original image. After the script was recorded, it shows the folder "C:\Temp" under the Action export.
This works fine everytime I'm exporting images from this folder, since I want the exported files to be in the same folder as the original files.
The problem happens when I'm exporting files from a different folder. The program will, by default, put the exported files into C:\Temp rather than the folder the original files were in.
I'm doing this using OLE automation (because I have to). I know if you do this within photoshop, you have the option of selecting where you want the exported image to be placed. And if I use OLE automation, I also have the option of deciding where the exported image will be placed using a dialog box.
But I want it so the user will not have to select any folder and the program will place the exported images into the same folders as the originals, rather than C:\Temp. Makes sense? I hope so.
