Hi

I've been having difficulty the last seven days + using 'Save for Web' to save files, experienceing a Write permissions error. Do not have an issue with the same file when I use 'Export As'.

 

Only becomes an issue when I want to export animated Gif's as Export As appears to only save the first frame whereas 'Save for Web' exports all frams as an animation?

 

Any help please?

 

Using macOS Big Sur and PS 2021 22.4.2 Release

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop while trying to use Save For Web. Would you mind telling us the exact macOS version you're running?

 

Please ensure that Photoshop has the necessary permissions on your Mac using the steps mentioned below:

1. Go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Photoshop is added to the list with a check mark in front of it.

3. If Photoshop is not a part of the list, please add it by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Also, grant permissions to Photoshop under Full disk access located in the same list as Accessibility.

5. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

If the issue persists, you can try running the script to repair permissions mentioned here: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/lightroom-basic-troubleshooting-fix-most-issues.html

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

Hi

 

On the machine I am having difficulty with I am running

 

macOS Big Sur Version 11.4

 

I followed steps 1-5 with no joy using Save for Web - see attached screenshot.

 

Does it matter the script link you gave is for Lightroom?

 

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Nick

Hi 

I ran the script anyway, restarted and retried, still no joy I am afraid.

Do you have any further suggestions please, as I have already un-installed and re-installed the PS software 4-5 times this week.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Nick

Hi Nikunj

 

And just for completeness I have tried using Save for Web saving to different locations i.e. iCloud Drive, local hard drive, dropbox, desktop and none work.
