I just updated to the mentioned version and the formats dropdown list only shows 3 formats: Photoshop (*.PSD;*.PDD;*.PSDT), *.PSB and TIFF (*.TIF;*.TIFF).

If your file contains items that are not supported in your required format (e.g. layers or 16 bits/channel) then the file format is moved to the Save a Copy menu. This was driven by changes in the Mac Operating System, although the changes are applied to both Mac and Windows versions to keep the two aligned. What's new in Photoshop Dave

Hi All, We appreciate your feedback on the recent “Save a Copy” change. To address your concerns, we have created two new options in Photoshop 22.4.2 that will enable both revert to the legacy “Save As” workflow and/or omit the addended “copy” when saving as a copy. These options can be found in the File Saving Options section under Preferences > File Handling. To quickly summarize, you will now have the option to revert to the legacy “Save As” workflow (from before recent changes) on both macOS...

Make sure you are running the current version 22.4.2. Then in Preferences > File Handling, check the box Enable legacy "Save As".

OS 11.2.23. Someone share the solution, just go to preference and change setting on file handling. Thank you.

@SoftTaco    "Now I install previous version, at least I solve the "2" problem."

 

Or, in the current version do what Ged posted above, and tick the options in Preferences > File Handling to revert Photoshop to the old behaviour

The latest photoshops and this one 22.4.3 doesn't have JPG as an option in the "save as" like others used to. it only gives you, psd, large document, PDF or TIFF. So we are still looking for an answer on this question since the "save as" is NOT the answer. If anyone knows, appreciated. Because yes, the ONLY way to save the JPG is going to "Export as" now and it automatically saves as rgb even if you uncheck "rgb" like the original post says....

OK! I just figured it out, so basically the new "save as" only gives those 4 options, but to the right of the "format" area dropdown menu, there is a "save a copy" button, when you click this, then it gives you all the "older" extensions, jpg included so you can save as a CMYK JPG.

I have not seen that.  I've checked the box for using 'legacy save as' dialog, but it still only gives me the 4 options in the 'save as' box.  The only way I've found I can get to the rest of the list is by switching to 'save a copy'.  Is there something I'm missing?

Disreguard my last post.  It looks like the program glitched and didn't save my preferences.  It's switched back now and Ctrl+Shift+S brings up the correct dialog box with all the file type options as before.

Adobe, please return save behaviour to the way it used to be. If I try to workaround this ridiculus change by rebinding save a copy to ctrl+shift+s then it automatically appends "copy" to my filename which I then have to delete. This is severely crippling my workflow of being able to quickly save a .tga of a game texture I'm working on, something that needs to be done often to be able to preview the texture in a game engine. The only way to work quickly now is to make my own macro or something and re-train my muscle memory to use keybind I assign to a macro. There should at least be an option to revert to the way things were in preferences.

Recently when I perform a "Save As" or  "Save A Copy" in Photoshop, it adds a -Edit to my filename.  This is new and has never happened with previous versions. I have not changed my workflow.  Prior to the recent update, I could export from LR classic into PS by selecting "Edit in Adobe Photoshop." I would then make my my edits in PS, flatten the image and then use the "Save As" command to save the file to the directory location I desired (not the same directory as the original raw file).  When I do this with the latest version of photoshop, -Edit is automatically added to the end of my file name.  I am performing the same steps that I have always performed: export from LR, edit in photoshop, and then select Save As.  Previously, there was no -Edit.  How to I get rid of this "-Edit" extension without having to manually delete it?  I tried to change my export settings in PS to uncheck the "Save As to Original Folder" thinking it had something to do with LR classics catalog pointing to the directory of the raw file.  However, that feature doesn't do anything different regardless if the box is checked or not.  In fact, it pulls up the last directory accessed regardless if the box is checked or not (completely separate issue than I described above).  Thank you for your help.

The save and save as functions have changed with the new Photoshop update.

This was due to Apple OS API changes they made it consistent on both Mac and Win going forward.

Thanks!  I have been using the save a copy feature and that works for me; however, I do not like that it adds the "-Edit" onto the back of my file name? Do you know of a way to not let it do that?

Just struggled with this and found the solution in case you haven't found it already.

 

Within LR go to Prefrecnes > External Editing > then down at the bottom there's a setting for "Edit Extyernally File Naming". That's what's adding the "Edit" to your filenames in photoshop so just change the Template to Filename and that will get rid of the Edit.

Long time user here... I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best user of Photoshop, but I use it in my print shop to process client files. Now, I often need to send flattened PDF proofs to clients while retaining my original working files. For me, this has always involved going to 'Save As..' and unselecting layers in the dialogues.

 

But with newer versions, I keep running into an issue where I go through this process, and continue to work on the master file. But when I go to save my layered PSD as the same filename.psd, I end up with a flattened, single layered file.

 

What is the utility in having a layered program create unlayered files automatically, especially when I can do that manually through the flatten action? Especially when this has only been an issue in my workflow for the past year? (I am not sure which version initiated the change, as I'm just noticing it with a project in the last two months.)
