Using the Save As dialog

 

A new Save a Copy workflow was introduced with the version 22.4 update of Photoshop. This feature automatically creates a copy of your work and allows you to export and share in your desired file format (JPEG, EPS, and others) without overwriting the original file, thus protecting your original in the process.

With this new option, only supported files that maintain your work are supported in the Save As command. If the file type youโ€™d like to save isnโ€™t an option, you may simply go to File > Save a Copy and create another version of your desired file type.

Can I revert to the old file-saving workflow in Photoshop?

Although the new Save a Copy workflow was introduced to save a copy of the user's work while preserving the original file without overwriting, it caused some confusion amongst users, and upon receiving their valuable feedback, Photoshop's product team decided to enhance the overall experience by adding an option to revert to the original file-saving workflow in Photoshop with the 22.4.2 update. 
See this community thread for more background info: Save as formats have disappeared Photoshop 22.4

Yes I'm having the same problem. I can click 'Save As' or 'Save a copy' and no dialogue box pops up. And even trying to save changes by trying to close the file doesn't work. When the 'Save changes before closing' dialogue pops up I select 'Save' but it doesn't save. Don't want to lose my work!

Hi @Eileen25083202zn40 & @Arber Elezi Photography 

 

We're sorry for the trouble with the save or save as functionality in Photoshop. Which Photoshop version do you have installed? Also, are you seeing this with some specific formats in Photoshop? You may try reset Photoshop preferences back to defaults and check if that helps. Here's the article for the steps: https://adobe.ly/3ceal5t Also, back up the existing Photoshop preferences if you have any custom brushes, actions, and workspace: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

Let us know if that helps.

 

Thanks,

Mohit
