I was trying to same my photoshop image as a PNG file. I saved a file I was working on earlier today in the PNG format but this evening that option was gone. I updated my photoshop thinking that might have been the problem but it still is not there. I need to save this image as a PNG format to upload to another company that needs it in that format. How do I get the PNG format saving option back?
Use the "Save a Copy" button. Click the "more info" button for further details. You might have added a layer that disqualified it from being saved back as a .png I could also suggest flattening the file, but you wouldn't be able to edit it.
@paulathorne "Save As" is located in the "File" menu right under "Save".
When I do a Save As, I am seeing PNG as a file format for saving. But if you have any layers, you will not see the PNG format option.
Right under "Save As" you will "Save A Copy " where you will see PNG as a file option. When you do that, PS will flatten the image and save it as a PNG. I just did that and opened it in PS 22.4 and verified the PNG has been flattened with just one layer.
