Thanks Mike, I like your code, cleaner, smaller and easier to understand.
And thanks for the explanation… I get it:)
Again, thanks to all who responded!

It's just how file systems work. If the beginning character is / that
means it starts at the root of the file system. Since you had already set
the defaultfolder, and wanted to go relative to there, you would just
specify the folder name/filename. Or as I said, pre-pend a dot. In fact,
Thank you to all who replied!
Adding the “.” solved the problem and the file saved where it was supposed to.
Confusing, because you would think that setting the defaultFolder would allow
you to specify the next sub folder like I did… and it’s not mentioned, that I
saw, in the docs.
First, a quick way to the stack or standalone folder is
Check that your folders permissions are ok.
export snapshot from rect 0,0,100,100 of this card to url
("binfile:"("resources")&"/Pic.jpg") as JPEG
See if this helps when using your put
If you use the path /tempMedia that forces it to the root of the
filesystem and if there isn't a folder /tempmedia, it'll fail. Either
leave off the preceding slash, or prepend it with a . <--(a dot) which
designates the current directory.

That is (or use variables for the filename):

Try using this syntax:
export image "tImage" to file "/tempMedia/testimage.jpg" as JPEG
I think you need binfile to read but not to write.

Well, I kept on with development, saying "I'll worry about the icon later"
Then today I added some devices to my Apple Developer Profile
Been a long time since I’ve done file work with LC, but I’m having an issue
saving an image to a file:
# set the defaultFolder to the folder containing the stackfile
set the itemDelimiter to slash
get the effective filename of this stack
set the defaultFolder to item 1 to -2 of it
A little late to the respond on this but I’d send a HTTP HEAD request. You will
get a 200 response back with no data if you have an http connection to the url
you specify. You could use your own server to send the request to but it is
common to use a well known service such as google to send

"Officially Supported" only
Wondering if you would post the windows-version of this technique again... or
copy it to this forum, ideally?
The dropbox entry I can find is expired.

Is anyone running LS Server on CentOS 6?
I notice that only version 7 is officially supported and not being a Linux
expert, I’d like to know if this server OS would need to be upgraded before
attempting anything with LC server on it.
