Save a Copy not saving file to original folder in Photoshop - Problem or Error?

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

When I go to "Save a Copy" it trys to save it in the folder that I last used, instead of the current folder.  Example:  I just worked on an image that I took today, and it is in the folder named "2021_05_28".  When I go to save a copy, it wants to save it in the folder I used yesterday, called "Book China".  Is there something I might be doing wrong, or is there a way to fix this issue.  And I do consider it an issue, because I have mistakenly saved to the wrong image because I was working too fast. 

 

Thank you.

changing the setting to 'always' save to original folder is working great for me so far. .  I didn't re -set any preferences.

No seriously! 

I did the whole process of resetting my preferences again.

You actually made me do it - I hate to admit it: but now it's working fine...

Last time I did the reset thing, I probably didn't do it thoroughly...

Thanks -  so SOLVED at least for me!

BREAKTHROUGH!  hopefully, so far so good.  I checked the 'always' under save to original folder in the preferences, then pressed 'enter' on my PC.  it has saved teh last three pictures to the original folder.   ( I hope I'm not cheering too soon. LOL)  It was checked at 'always ask 'which it never did.

When simple things like this arent working there is no need to keep adding all the bells and whistles. Trying Gimp
