So Photoshop is working perfectly for me, except for one thing: save for web. Whenever I try to save a gif (both via the keyboard short cut and via drop down menus) I get this popup:
I've also tried saving a gif through the 'Save as' option but it just saves the first frame as a jpeg. I really am not sure whats going wrong here, the save for web option isn't greyed out, I just get the popup whenever I try to click it.
Could you please have a look at this forum thread and let us know if it helps? Save for Web - The operation could not be completed. Access is denied.
I have Photoshop CC 2018 and I'm running Windows 32x.
I've had a look at that thread but unfortunately it's not helped me.
Could you both try updating Photoshop to the recently released version which is 19.1.4 via the Creative Cloud desktop application and let us know if it helps with the issue?
Hi Sahil, I also started to have the same problem as described above and it seems that it occurred after the last Windows update.
I uninstalled previous and installed the latest version of Photoshop, but it did not solve the issue. In addition, I cannot even simply save as JPEG now and getting an error message "Could not complete Save As command because there is not enough memory (RAM)", but I definitely do have enough RAM memory.
My System Info:
Adobe Photoshop Version: 19.1.4 20180507.r.325 2018/05/07: 1170750 x64
Number of Launches: 1
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit
Version: 10 or greater 10.0.17134.1
Please help to fix it!
I need Photoshop almost every day and currently unable to do anything in it...
This is a workaround for another issue but it may help you
Change the value data to the corresponding amount of RAM you have installed, so if it's 8GB input 8000. 16GB input 16000 etc
Thank you so much for pointing me towards this workaround, it seems to have solved the problems, at least for now..
One question: whenever this issue(s) will be fixed in the new versions of Photoshop, will I need to go back and delete this registry entry?
Hi Elena, yes you will need to undo the registry entry.
Did work for me as well.
Thank u for sharing.
Remembering to delete in the future ...is another story.
I Have Photoshop CC 2018 and I am Using Windows 10 64-bit.
And the thread is not helped me too.
Have u found the solution?
I am having the same problem with the latest Photoshop 20.0.4 release. Working on a Mac, OS Catalina, 16 GB ram, 50 GB of storage. Same error message from Save for Web (Legacy): "Can not complete this operation. An unknown error has occurred."
Same here. Mac OSX 10.15.6 running the lastest CC PSD. I downgraded my PSD several times to running v21.0 now but the same error no matter the version. I have saved the file a few different ways but whenever I use Save for Web on that file I get this error. Its really frustrating.
I am having the same problem on Mac and the latest photoshop release (22.0) on Mojave 😞 have you found a FIX?
Delete "Adobe Photoshop Save For Web Prefs" files located in your Adobe program files. No need to restart computer. Just open Photoshop > click Save for web > and it worked on my end. Note, I had multiple "photoshop save for web prefs" files named after 2021, 2020, and 2019. I deleted it all.
Worked for me; thanks!
