I'm trying to figure out an Automator workflow (to make as a Service/Quick Action) to convert an images' file type - easy enough with the "Change Type Of Images" option. BUT, doing that alone replaces the original image - where i want to keep the original image.
Using the "Copy Finder Items" requires you to choose a location for the converted file, BUT, i want it to save to the same folder as the original, AND, i don't want to have to have a "choose folder" option come up every time.
I've read that it may not be possible without using "Variables" & "Applescript" - both of which i don't know. I would think that it should be more simple than that - that only if the "Copy Finder Items" had an option to use the same folder.
I found another workflow where if you put the "New Folder" option in there, it will leave the original alone and copy it to the new folder and convert that one. i could do this if i have to, but would still rather the conversion to take place in the same folder as the orig.
any ideas? thanks.
