Just flatten it, then save.
Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
Does the file actually have Layers?
That is one screenshot … please post screenshots illustrating the process.
For example: Did you »Save As« or »Save A Copy«?
»Save As« would naturally preclude the destruction of the Layer data.
I have always had that option(TIFF) to save as without layers... as of this am it is now greyed out.
I specifically asked:
»Did you »Save As« or »Save A Copy«?«
Is there some problem with answering that?
If the issue arose when you used File > Save As try File > Save a Copy instead.
And please post meaningful screenshots.
Have you considered enabling Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling > Enable legacy »Save As«?
Saving a layered TIFF as a flattened file will by definition have to be a copy.
Using PS 23.2.0 ver. As of this am I no longer have the option to save a tiff file without without layers. Ideas? Thanks.
It would be prudent to review the following:
Thank you. All set.
