I usually have to save my photoshop documents as PNG and on Mac you have to manually select "PNG" option from the dropdown manually using the mouse.

I wonder if its possible somehow to create some kind of a shortcut or a script (applescript) that would select 'PNG' by default? That would save me huge amount of time!

Thanks for your help.

Photoshop has a feature called actions that can automate tasks like this. They work like Microsoft Office macros - you record the keystrokes or mouse actions and then Photoshop plays them back.

But this would save the files always in the same location, wouldn't it? I mean, my experience with macros is that they play back the same steps, and recording an action to save in one location wouldn't be of much use... – Camilo Martin May 1 '12 at 7:04
