Adobe Photoshop saves without filename extension (.jpg, .psd…)
“Save As” problem, extensions .jpg or .psd not automatically added.

Another problem I encountered in Adobe Photoshop, trying to save an image or psd file then suddenly, when I look into the file, it doesn’t save as .psd nor .jpg file. It was like unrecognized file on the Windows Explorer. When I browse to the folder, I realize that while saving my work, the filename extension doesn’t added.

Solution to the problem may vary, but the least I can do was to examine the file, then I realize it was my mistake, saving the file with multiple dot (.) extension, can have an issue in the long run.

Take note two things when saving the Adobe Photoshop file or image:

1. When you add (.) to your filenames, Windows OS considered everything after the last dot (.) to be the extension of your file. Be careful not to have one.


2. Another thing to do is to hide the filename extension on Windows. To do that, on Windows XP, go to Settings then Control Panel, and then choose Folder Options.

On Windows 7, Control Panel then choose Folder Options.
Photoshop doesn’t save the filename extension
From there, click on View tab, then see if the Hide extensions for known file types were check. If not, then check it then click Apply and the OK.


I hope this simple tip helps you out! Feel free to comment below. Cheers! 😀
