I have a couple of Photoshop issues that have recently come up that have never existed previously. I'm using a Mac with the latest version of PS. Problems:
1. When I copy an image using the duplicate option, I can't find where the dupe has gone. Previously, duplicated images went back into the same file as the original.
2. When I make a copy and use the "save as" option and save to desktop, there is no problem. But when I get the message about "save changes" to the original image, if I select "don't save", it saves them anyway. Previously, this did not occur.
3. When I finish working in PS, I can't quit PS. The only way to exit the program is to force quit.
This was not an issue previously.
4. Lastly, when I now download images from my camera, I have to close every image individually as opposed to seeing icons for all the saved images in a box and just closing out the downloading process, as I have done for years previously.
If anyone can suggest fixes or indicate something I'm missing or should do differently, I would sincerely appreciate it.
I never had any of these problems previously, so it's frustrating to deal with so many stupid obstacles.
When Photoshop starts behaving in odd ways a reset of the Preferences will often help. These can be found in the Photoshop menu on a Mac and the Edit menu on Windows. Look for the "Reset Preferences On Quit" button within the General section.
In reference to your first problem you wrote "When I copy an image using the duplicate option". Are you using the Duplicate option within the Image menu? Yes a duplicate is created but you would always have to manually save it yourself.
