Hi All,

I've been working on this image for a while and it's been exporting fine for numerous revisions. Today for some reason when I go to Export As -> jpg the red/black gradient overlay is shifting to the left significanly. I've attached some screenshots to show what is happening. Any ideas why this suddenly happened?

I just wanted to follow up on my own question. I found the culprit with this file. I had recently duplicated a layer and moved it so only a portion of it was within the canvas. (see attachment). That was 100% the cause of the problem. Once I cropped that layer to the canvas boundries the export problem was solved.

yes, this is a bug with Export As and Adobe is aware of it. Hopefully a fix will be included with the next update. Until then, flatten first, then Export.

That's interesting because it had been working for several revisions of this document. The only thing I did today was to duplicate one of the flame and one of the smoke layers to give some more depth. Could it be the overall document size that 'broke' the function?

and can i suggest that you warm up your photo before finalizing? Her complexion is incredibly blue and in the industry, we call that corpse skin.

Yes, that's not the final photo of the girl. That was just a quick test shot with no lighting. This was just to get some feedback on the overall layout/design. Thanks though!

Hi!

I don't have a fix for the problem, but I do have a workaround.

Before you export your image, merge all your layers into a top layer (keeping all the working layers in tact) by choosing Command-Option-Shift-E (Mac), Control-Alt-Shift-E (Windows). This will merge everything toghether into one layer and hopefully stop any colorshifting from happening in the Export process.

Let us know if that works or if you are still having the issue,

Michelle

Thank you. I believe on the Mac that Shift is not part of the key combo, however.

Hi!

I just wanted to clarify that when you want to create a new layer from all of your existing vidible layers and keep all of them in tact, shift is needed--holding down the shift key is important in the creation of a new layer. Holding just Option and Command-E will merge the selected layer with the layer underneath.

Yes, that seems so. Originally it wasn't working for me and that's why I tried it without the Shift. Maybe I had something odd selected at the time. But it definitely works as you describe and will be very useful going forward.

One thing I forgot to mention is that you have to have one of the vidible layers selected (preferably the top layer) and you use that keyboard combination, it will place the new layer directly on top of that layer. If you don't have a visible layer selected, nothing will happen. I wonder if that is why it didn't work for you that time.

 

I use it quite often when I am working on an image--I will do certain corrections and then merge them all to a new layer and then move forward with some other step, knowing that my original layers are protected and I can go back to them whenever I need to.

Glad to know it will be helpful!

Michelle

I have also that issue in gradient. I used a trick to correct this is we can duplicate that layer or group and then merge the previous layer or group by pressing CTRL+E.  In this way you have also the ability to change or update the gradients etc.
