When I’ve finished editing a PSD file and want to save over the original .jpg file that I’ve been working on. The pop-up settings window has the ‘As a Copy’ tick box faded out and a warning sign stating "file must be saved as a copy with this selection".
Regardless, when I proceed the next window prompts me that I’ll be ‘replacing the file’ (all good), but then it creates a separate file with the ‘...copy’ added in the name. – Essentially producing x2 files.
This never happened before in PSD?
I know JPGs cant retain layers, adjustment info, but I don’t want it to and I’m happy for it to just flatten everything which is what it has always done before.
I think this happened since I’ve updated my CC into 2021.
Is there something in the settings to override this?
The only way around this is to go to ‘Layer’ / ‘Flatten Image’, then save, which is not ideal.
