Is there a way to export a jpg at 300dpi in the latest update of Photoshop 2021, v 22.4.3?

In the latest update, the ability to "Save As" a jpg is gone, for whatever reason. Now the only way to save a jpg from a PSD file is to us Export As. Even with quality set to high, it always exports the jpg as 72dpi, and there doesn't seem to be a way to specify what dpi you want the jpg to be saved at. Now every time I export a jpg, I have to open that jpg in Photoshop again and convert it to 300dpi, which is so much added time. Please tell me I'm missing something and this isn't just the way it is now!

Hi @aphilli7  As of 22.4.1, you can find png, jpg, pdf, etc., in Save a Copy. As of 22.4.2 you can revert to the previous behavior in Preferences > File Handling > File Saving Options: Enable Legacy Save As Do not append Copy See this help page for details and cautions: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/saving-images.html   ~ Jane

Just for clarity, Exporting does not export at 72ppi it exports without any PPI value. Exporting is designed for web use where the ppi metadata value is meaningless. On re-opening a document without PPI metadata, a nominal 72 PPI is assigned. Now your issue. To Save in jpeg, either use Save a Copy or, in the current version, go to Preferences- File Handling and check the box to use the old Save As behaviour. Dave
