Having trouble exporting PNG. I'm unable to use quick export to png - it was working the other day just fine. Nothing happens. Also, export As --> PNG gives me a "Cannot Export to This Location" error. 

 

Tried resetting my preferences - didn't fix it. 

 

Photoshop CC 22.3.1. Was working fine until 3 nights ago. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

I am having the same issue. Working with Mac.
Tried the quickfix of ticking the "ask where to export exch time"

NOTHING changed and it is SO frustrating! 
Can you please advise what to do?

 

What is the meaning of "use legacy 'export as'"?

I'm having this same issue. I ma not even presented with a save screen. From the export option screen i press "Export" only to get the same message above, then kicked back to the export options screen. My settings are set to ask where to save the export every time, so i'm not sure how its determining that it cant save there, if it shouldn't have even tried to save anything yet?

This is broken in Photoshop still in 22.5.0. Use the legacy Export As option.

It needs to be enabled in preferences: Preferences > Export > select "Use legacy "Export As".

 

Good luck!

Weird... not sure: I just confirmed the option is in Photoshop 22.5.2 and it's in 23.0.0 as well.
