Hi everyone. I'm suddenly having an issue saving gifs from photoshop. I'm doing the usual steps to create a gif and after I select export, save for web (legacy), save... the only options I have are HTML and images, images only, and HTML only. I haven't done anything differently to cause this and I've reset my laptop (windows), reset my photoshop preferences but nothing is working. How can I fix this?

It hasn’t changed, but in Save for Web (Legacy) you choose the image file format in the upper right corner of the Save for Web dialog box, not in the file system dialog box that appears after you click Save. The file system dialog box format choices (HTML and Images, Images Only, HTML Only) are for whether the images get exported on their own, or with accompanying HTML code (such as if the Slice tool was used).

OK. You have it set up correctly. That means when you click Save at the bottom, and it displays the box where you tell it which folder to save into, in the Format menu you can leave it set to Images. When you click Save in that second box, it will save the image in GIF format.
