With each update, Photoshop gets worse and worse. After the update, Ps doesn't work for me. Why do you do those updates when you can't do it?

This is a user forum answered by volunteer users not Adobe employees. Without any information on your system, the exact version of Photoshop and what "doesn't work for me" means then no-one here can help or advise you. Dave

I've gone back to an older version. When the did the update that made you save a JEPG as a copy, everything after that is less efficient. It either has you save it as a copy or if you chose the "legacy save as" in file handling, then it adds the word edit to your file and it doesn't automatically put it back in the source folder.  I don't want to have to remove words.

Hi 

You have responded to a post from May 2021 and things have changed since then.

 

In 22.4.1, you can find png, jpg, pdf, etc., in Save a Copy.
As of 22.4.2 you can revert to the previous behavior in Preferences > File Handling > File Saving Options:

  • Enable Legacy Save As
  • Do not append Copy to filename


See this help page for details and cautions:

Please advise me how I can revert to the old version.
I don't understand why there is no option to save to jpeg in the new
version. I have a photo in Ps which is 171 Mb and when I save it in
jpeg I have 53 kb ... in very poor quality. When I save it as a copy,
it has 7 Mb but also very poor quality.
I don't understand why they did it that way. This year is the last
time I paid CC. I work on a photo in Photoshop all day and I can't
save it.

»I don't understand why there is no option to save to jpeg in the new

There is File > Save a Copy, there is the option to revert to the old dialog (Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling > Enable legacy "Save As«), so what are you talking about? 

 

»I have a photo in Ps which is 171 Mb and when I save it in
jpeg I have 53 kb ... in very poor quality. When I save it as a copy,
it has 7 Mb but also very poor quality.«

Please provide the files or at least a meaningful description of the actual process. 

Is there a relevant amount of Ancestors Metadata in the file?

If you flatten your photo (if  needed) and go to File>save as... in the save as dialog box should have jpeg. It does not reduce the file size. You can slide the quality as far as 12.

Best of luck! I don't like the option for Legacy save as.
It's not saving my files in the source directory.
I too use it every day for many hours and feel your pain.
I love the version that I'm using.
