PS23 How to fix 'Save for web' truncating names to 31 characters?

Hi There,

 

Photoshop 23 states it will truncate files names when using 'Save for web'. The error says to use the optmise fly-out menu but I see no options for changing file names...

Other answers say to use the newer 'Export as' but 'Export as' seems super dumbed-down. e.g. it won't estimate file size + no numerical control over jpeg compression. Isn't compressing to a file size the point of exporting a jpeg for web? Adobe understands that millions of non-photographers use Photshop daily - right? Starting to wonder!

 

Has anyone else seen this or know how to fix?

 

Cheers, Ben

In Save for Web go to Edit Output Settings>Saving Files and under File Name Compatibility uncheck Mac OS 9. ( Mac OS 9 was limited a max of 31 characters in a file name)

OK, it appears 'Save for web' won't truncate file names when you save, it just says it will. I guess it's a bug?

Thanks Jeff, didn't notice it was a drop-down sorry - is that on by default now or is the warning new? Don't ever recall seeing this.

 

And do you know if 'Export as' can deliver the same info/control or do you use 'Save for web' as well? Cheers
