Save for Web Error with apparent optimization

Hi there,

When I'm creating a gif in Photoshop and exporting via "Save for Web (Legacy)", the file is automatically putting various filters on the image, and the "original" images that make up the gif are lost. Anyone experience this and know how to export it so the original image display doesn't change?

Please post a screenshot of your SfW settings. The original file is never touched, just make sure you do a normal save if you need to retain that. And post before/after with these supposed filters.

Here are the SFW settings, as well as a screenshot of an exported image in the gif (where you can see the change in photos)

Until this week, I never had this issue. It seems to want to automatically optimize the images in the gif. I'll click on the original tab too and the preview goes back to normal, but for some reason, it goes back to optimizing again. I think it has something to do with the dither, but both "dither" and "no dither" options produce the same thing.

You didn't post a before and after. Actual photos, not screenshots. So I have no idea what changed. And yes a 75% dither to 128 colors/sRGB will affect your image. There are no filters, just a big change to the color palette.

I have to blur the faces, but here is the before and after. 

I upload the original photos into file the stack, create a timeline for the purpose of creating a gif, and when I go to hit save, for some reason it's automatically changing the colors of the image, the shadows/texture/etc. of the subjects and portions of the image.

Do you understand what dithering is? You are getting banding and poor coloring because this image needs more than 128 colors.

For anyone else that runs into this problem, I found at solution on YouTube to solve for at least part of this problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UV0y-beEOIg

I'm still having an issue with keeping the original format of photos when exporting as a .gif, but this at least helps solve for an issue that I was experiencing with the Save for Web export in general.
