Hi, might be a stupid question but when I save a file, say a jpg - it doesn't show the file extension by default which means I can't easily tell which of my images are what format. On my desktop It will be called (for example) 'image' instead of 'image.jpg' - can I turn this on somewhere so it displays the file extension in Finder?

Thanks
Michael

This should be easy to solve using the finder preferences.

1) Open a finder window

2) Go to Finder > Preferences

3) Under advanced - Select "Show all filename extensions"


Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply but that turns on every single extension in the whole OS which is a bit odd in places. When I save in PS it will say image.jpg but in PM it just says image and no extension. I don't know why it does this.
