Photoshop shortcut for File, Save As, Format: PNG or JPG, Save, OK [duplicate]

Classical situation: you’re working in Photoshop on a PSD file and you want a to export it to PNG or JPG.

Here is the usual way: menu File > Save As > Click on Format > Find PNG in the list and select it > Save > PNG Interlace dialog > OK.

A little shorter is to use CTRL + SHIFT + S to do Save As.

Question: is there a way to do all of this in one or two keyboard shortcuts?

Example: CTRL+SHIFT+J: Export to JPEG, CTRL+SHIFT+P: Export to PNG


Open the actions window (Window → Actions or Alt+F9), then create and record and action.

Now just apply to it a hotkey (one of the function keys) Add it by going to action options.

You can record actions for each type of export you’d like.

It’s worth it to note, that the action will always name the file the same thing (overwriting previous files) – which is very unfortunate and I haven’t found any sources to allow for custom naming (or at least not overwriting)

Maybe one day Adobe will allow this.

Apparently, it does work in newer versions (tested)

I don’t think so with older versions

See GIF below for how to create action:

Once completed you can just click the function key (F6 in my case) and it will perform all the actions that were pre-recorded.
