Hi -- Photoshop is updated and I cannot save as anything other than a tif, psd or psb file -- I can choose Save as - but this is not efficient and is confusing because it overwrites other files.

 

What's the fix?

No bug, you might be misunderstanding something.

If there is a real issue please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible.

Thanks very much for this. When I go to 'save' I have only the option to save it as a tif, psd, or psb. Guess it is something new, but I am not happy with it. They are merged layers so the other options should be available as they used to be, without having to choose the save as.

 

Thanks again/

Since 22.4, if your file contains items that are not supported in your required format (e.g. layers or 16 bits/channel or hidden pixels etc) then the file format is moved from Save As (Shift+Ctrl+S) to the Save a Copy command (Alt+Ctrl+S). This was driven by changes in the Mac Operating System, although the changes are applied to both Mac and Windows versions to keep them aligned.

Appreciate your reply. Yep, I got the same reply above. Thank you -- it's not a good new feature and is creating more work for me.
