Question about saving for web (Export persona)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around saving for web with export persona. I need to save for web in different sizes and for different screen resolutions. My filenames have to follow this naming conventions:


  • myfile@2x.jpg
  • myfile.jpg
  • myfile_medium.jpg
  • myfile_medium@2x.jpg
  • etc.


How can I achieve this? I know I can choose from presets like 2x in the slices panel in export persona. However, choosing 2x for example doubles the pixel size (in other words: interpolates the image) which is not what I want. I tried various other setting options without fully understanding it. Please have a look at the screenshot attached and you will understand my questions.


Thanks for your help and replies!

To get the name as "myfile@2x.jpg" in this case, for the in the above screenshot shown setup, write a "2" additionally into that "Benutzerskalierung: [ 2 ]" field. The [Skalierungssuffix] variable will be then associated with that integer value you write insert there. So the whole panel setup will to have be like this for this one naming ...

  • [Slicename] [Skalierungssuffix]    &   Benutzerskalierung: [ 2 ]  ---> "myfile@2x.jpg"

For the name "myfile_medium.jpg" write/setup without the shown quotes:

  • [Slicename] "_medium"   &   Benutzerskalierung: [  ]  ---> "myfile_medium.jpg"

For the name "myfile_medium@2x.jpg" write/setup without the shown quotes:

  • [Slicename] "_medium" [Skalierungssuffix]   &   Benutzerskalierung: [ 2 ]  ---> "myfile_medium@2x.jpg"


You can also omit the [Skalierungssuffix] and Benutzerskalierung: [ 2 ] field here and then write the path names completely on your own for each exportpath:

  • \into\my\subpath [Slicename] @whatever I want here

Meaning you can write directly paths before and other text you want before, inbetween or after the variables here. The whole input will then be used to construct the path/filename.
