Adobe, bring back the Quick Share button that was at the top right of Photoshop (it was just removed with the April release of Photoshop 23.3)

The reasoning for removing it is stated as "due to low usage, desire to simplify the options bar UI, and redundant functionality to other export functions."

But there is no other export function (that I am aware of) that allows you to send an image directly to another device via AirDrop -- This was extremely convenient as I didnt have to save/export a file onto my HDD everytime I wanted to send something to my phone or tablet.
Please bring it back and tuck it away somwhere if you have to.

Share is not available in native mode on the M1. Photoshop needs to be run under Rosetta to use that function. See help article here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html Dave

UPDATE – 24 April 2022: This reply was marked correct, but things have changed. Since I originally posted this reply, Adobe has updated their help article for Quick Share to say:

 

Goodbye, Quick Share!
With the April release of Photoshop 23.3, Quick Share will be removed due to low usage, desire to simplify the options bar UI, and redundant functionality to other export functions.

 

So it looks like Adobe may be removing this feature permanently.

My original reply from 16 March 2021:

 

I still see the Share button in the latest version on my Mac, but I think I saw some posts where it seems to be missing in the new M1 native version for Apple Silicon Macs. Are you using an Intel or Apple Silicon Mac, and which version of macOS?

 

If you are on an M1 Mac, the official Adobe help document for Photoshop for Apple Silicon says one of the currently missing features is “Share an image button / Quick Share.” Those missing features were available when running the non-M1 (Intel) version under Rosetta translation. 

 

The Adobe help document doesn’t say whether those features are permanently gone, but some were restored between the beta and official releases, so more of them will probably come back in later updates. If you must use the Share button now, you could set Photoshop to open in Rosetta translation, but would lose the speed benefits of M1 optimization.

Same problem in using Photoshop 2021. The quick share button in upper right corner is non-functional. It's there, it just doesn't work. I restarted my MacBook Pro 15-inch (Mid-2015) running Big Sur. It worked just prior to the latest update of Photoshop 2021 but not since. Updated to Latest version of Big Sur as well (OS 11.3)

Hi @Manifestationbeads 

 

As Conrad said in his earlier reply, if you need the Share button, you need to run Photoshop using Rosetta. See this help page for details:

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

Features not available in the native mode

Refer to the below list to determine whether to open Photoshop in Native mode or open using Rosetta. 

To learn how to run Photoshop in Rosetta, see About Rosetta.

  • Import, Export, and playback of embedded video layers
  • Shake Reduction filter
  • Preset Syncing
  • Share an image button / Quick Share
  • Opening or placing U3D formatted files
  • Starting Bridge from Photoshop menus

 

EDIT: After I wrote this, Quick Share was removed.

If I'm reading correctly, that's just for the M1 chip. Yet the same issue is happening on my MBP with a Core i5 processor. Any suggestions?

I see the Share button in Photoshop on my Intel Core i5 Mac, so maybe it’s related to the version of macOS? Mine is running macOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Which version are you running?

Big Sur 11.5 with the latest Photoshop update. It stopped working after the system update, and I thought it might correct after the PS upgrade.

Bonjour,

Version Photoshop 23.1.1

Mac OS Monterey 12.2

MacBook Pro (2021)

 

Le bouton "partager" qui se trouvait initialement dans le menu "fichier" et via un bouton placé à droite du programme, n'est plus disponible.

 

Comme conseillé par Photoshop, je suis allé dans les préférences sytème > extensions, mais impossible de résoudre le problème.

 

Quelqu'un a-t-il une idée ?

 

Merci d'avance,

Bonjour, merci pour votre réponse.

 

J'ai reçu entre-temps une réponse me disant que le problème est connu et que c'est la puce M1 des nouveaux MacPro qui en est la cause. Je dois attendre une nouvelle mise à jour ou installer provisoirement l'app Rosetta 2.

 

Merci, bien à vous
