What version of the image processor are you using (PHP, ASP, ASP.NET)?
What are the steps in your action file?

With Smart Image Processor ASP 2 never had problems with this.

So what exactly are you using ASP or ASP.NET? On your screenshot it says ASP and your post it says: Classic ASP, ASP.NET?

Just create test page with ASP Upload 3.1.3 and SIP 2.5.7 Upload works fine. *.jpg file is uploaded and changed to *.png extension

When change save image properties in Server connect:

Image: image1
Format: AUTO
Quality: 75
Path: /images
Template: {name}{ext}
overwrite: checked

And upload a file get a 500 error:

ASP Upload 3 and Smart Image Processor have nothing to do with the server connect tools, they are totally different so there is nothing to compare here ...

I am checking the issue with the developers.

Please use: {name}.png as a rename template.

Hi Teodor,

Is this a workaround?

When change rename template a you suggest it also uploads the original *.jpg file even when overwrite is checked.

Now I get 2 files uploaded (*.jpg and *.png) instead of 1 file which has to change from *.jpg to *.png

No, it is not a workaround that is how the image processor works.
When the file is saved, it will overwrite a file with the same name (name.png) and (name.jpg) is a different file ...

What you are trying to achieve could easily be done with the help of file system connector.
Just upload your images to a separate upload folder, then process them and save them to the desired location, after that just use the file remove step and remove the originally uploaded jpg.

Why does this works fine on the older extension SIP. I know they are different but you create this image processor with the same features as SIP has???

Filetype png
uploaded *.jpg file is saved as *.png file and there is NO original *.jpg file uploaded.

Back to Server Connect
Can you tell me what is the purpose Format (auto, JPEG, PNG, GIF) of save properties??

Thats why I thought you rename {ext} change to *.png is a workaround?
