Education : no30 'Quick saving the diffuse'

When saving the diffuse for preview in the 3D app you usually 'save as' and select the image type etc but on those time consuming textures you can save time by going to actions in photoshop where you can 'record' an action so you just hit 1 button to save. Sometimes it can be off putting as it will suddenly stop working because it has changed the name of your diffuse (usually by adding 'copy' in the filename). If this does happen simply keep it and just temporarily change the root of the texture in the 3D app so it points to this 'copy'.
