Moin moin,

seit neuestem fragt Photoshop mich jedesmal ob ich meine Daten in der Cloud speichern möchte,

möchte ich nicht, und ich möchte auch nicht jedesmal erneut gefragt werden. Kann man das deaktivieren, das Photoshop unbedingt in der Cloud speichern möchte?

Danke

Hello,

 

Photoshop v25.9.1 has removed this setting.  I can no longer configure Photoshop to save to my computer by default.  It tries to save to the cloud every time.  Extremely maddening.  I have deleted my entire preferences directory at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2024 and restarted Photoshop to no avail.  I have uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled Photoshop with to no avail. 

 

Please advise how to configure Photoshop to default to my own computer.

That's odd. I've heard of this before, but resetting preferences always fixed it.

 

If you go to the Save As dialog, do you see a button at the bottom left, to save to disk? If so, click that and see if that kick-starts it back to correct behavior.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out. Which version of Photoshop and operating system are you using?

With the latest version, you should get these options:

Exactly the same for me with 24.6. The option wasn't there, and then after reading your comment I restarted, and suddenly the option was there. Odd, indeed. Thanks for the tip.

I am experienceing the same thing - it's driving me nuts!

There is no option in my preferences to change the location.

I have updated my PS and I'm on 24.7 but it has not changed, despite a restart.

Is there a work around?

Weird. And it's just Photoshop you restarted, not the whole system, right? (Restarting just Photoshop was what worked for me.) It was driving me nuts, too. Good luck!
