I get this error constantly on my PC
Ryzen 5 2600X and a RTX 2070.
Meanwhile on my 11 year old Mac Pro I can export the same exact file without a single issue.
When I try to export it, it would always say unknown error. When I try to save it, it always says program error
Can you try this:
Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Enable optimized Export As" - Then restart Photoshop. Does it work after restart?
Same problem here, I tried your solution but it dit not change anything.
I am also experiencing this issue on Photoshop 22.1.0 on an iMac Pro running Mac OS 10.15.7.
I tired the Technology Previews - "Enable optimized export as" and the only improvement is that the quick export will create an empty (zero bytes) file but the Export As malfunction is the same as before.
I am also having a problem when exporting, it informs that in the visualization an unknown error occurred and does not present the images to be exported. Also, I can't save the project. I have already tested other ADOBE programs and none of them showed errors, only photoshop. I have tried some methods, I have reinstalled the program and it remains.
Found the solution through adobe support, it's related to the new graphic card-based processing improvement in the program. Go to Edit>Preferences>Performance and uncheck the graphic processor option from there and relaunch the application. This will fix the problem with the heal brush as well.
This isn’t a fix but if you need to get some files out, this worked for me so I hope it works for you too.
My Save As still works so here’s my workaround:
1. Save as
-Save: As a copy (check)
[Save]2. Import saved png file back into photoshop
*Export As functionality returns for png file*
3. Export As to export in different sizes.
I hope this helps someone.
