Preventing dashes, or hyphens, in Photoshop Save for Web


You know the way it works… you name your photo “2012 Mum and me at the seaside” and save it as a JPEG to Email to someone, and then, all of a sudden (and extremely annoyingly) Photoshop decides to call it “2012-Mum-and-me-at-the-seaside.jpg“.

Well, here is how to suppress those pesky dashes, or hyphens once and for all.

1. Open a photo, any photo in Photoshop

2. Click “File-> Save for Web & Devices” and now click on the tiny menu at the top right corner and then click “Edit Output Settings.








3. Now select “Saving Files” and then remove the tick/checkmark next to “Unix” Filename Compatibility.

4. Done! No more pesky dashes for you!
