I recently updated Photoshop and ever since the number of save options have been reduced and I can no longer choose JPG, PDF or others when using the Save As option. I can export images as JPG but for some reason I'm not able to choose this option in the Save As command. Has anyone else experienced this issue and knows of a potential fix? I've attached an image showing the save options that I have at the moment.

In the latest version of Photoshop the Save functions have changed, now multi-layered PSDs that need to be saved as a single layered document such as JPG and PDF need to use the Save a Copy feature. This very useful YouTube video explains the difference and when to use Save, Save As, Save a Copy and Export As: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CS_oieQL7c

Hi,

I’m opening a jpg file in PS and do some minor retouche (no layers), then I save the file with CMD-S to overwrite the original.
In former versions the jpg quality setting was the same as the original.
In this version of PS the default quality setting is 1, so for every image I have to change it to 10 before saving.

Hi, I was confused by the export word.

I would immediately create a thread on the https://feedback.photoshop.com forum about the change in quality with save on a jpeg, with a mention of 22.4.2 in the title.

Hallo, ich habe heute auch die v22  geladen und habe auch das Problem des Speicherns von JPG.

Geht nun nur noch mit "als Kopie speichern", dann kommen die Optionen wie PDF, JPG, etc..

Leider ändert PS dann auch den Namen der zu speichernden Datei in Name + Kopie. Für mich sehr ärgelich da ich häufig PSD in JPG umwandeln muss und nun ständig das Wort "Kopie" aus dem Namen löschen muss.

Ich hoffe Dir geholfen haben zu können.

Thank you. I have just tried using the Save as Copy feature and it worked as expected. I checked the file name and didn't have to remove 'Copy' from the end of it. I will keep an eye out for this in the future.

I had the same issue with PDF not showing up to save as. My file was a regular flattened, 16 bit, RGB, etc, etc. Been doing this for many years w/ PSDs.

So I see the PDF format option was moved to "Save as a Copy". Easy fix, but why? Why change it? It hijacks an established workflow that takes more time to figure out, check forums, why it no longer works. Meanwhile the speed to quickly hit deadlines suffers. Why change a basic menu workflow? Not cool, not cool at all.

ssowers – You'll be pleased to know that in the latest version of Photoshop (22.4.2) under the File Handling tab in preferences you can change back to Enable legacy "Save As".
