Can not export any legacy formats.
I have enabled photoshop 2021 in the systems security permissions for full disk access and the same for files and folders and accessibility, after having read some of the previous advice on here for older versions of photoshop and OS, but to no avail. An error message appears every time I try to save for web legacy - It's an animated GIF I'm trying to export. An incredibly frustrating fault that needs to be addressed soon!

I ran into this issue and found a solution using information from another forum. For me, it had something to do with Dropbox backups. I turned off the backup of my files that was going to Dropbox and re-tried exporting the photo in legacy format (save for web). This time instead of the error message I got a popup to allow permissions for it to write to the destination folder. I granted it permission and the export was successful. After the successful export I was able to re-enable Dropbox backup...

OK – so after another restart the save for web function seems to be working. Not sure what actually fixed it, but maybe the permissions thing plus time, plus restarts did work in the end.

 

Thanks for your response to this...

I can't use the Save for Web option for any images. I am using Mac Big Sur 11. 5.1. I have changed my privacy permissions so that Photoshop has full access but I can't get this to work. I read lots of similar issues and tried their fixes but the error persists.

Can't use means exactly what? There's an error, the command isn't available?

@J5E83 Write permission errors usually have to do with permissions. Try granting Read and Write permissions to the Adobe folder at the locations mentioned in the link: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/required-permissions-for-photoshop0.html

I get an error message when I try to save for web and can't use the function. I have provided read/write permissions for Photoshop. I think this may have to do with my DropBox backup settings so I turned them off completely and reinstalled Photoshop. Now I am getting the error "The Operation Could Not Be Completed". I've attached the message.

Try trashing your Photoshop preferences. Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop.

Better? 

If no, try logging into another account (you may need to make one), error? 

Try starting up in Safe mode (hold down Shift Key when booting), error? 

You might want to try running a free utility like Onyx: same error?

I did, was hoping a reboot would make it work but it did not. I'm not sure what is happening. I wound up redownloading the 2020 version. Super strange!

At least your solution will no doubt still help some others! I've got some intense security protection on my computer since it's from work, so that could be it as well.

Hello

 

I'm trying to export a two frame animated gif. I'm going to Save for Web Legacy as normal but every time I'm getting the error 'Could not complete this operation. A write permissions error has occurred'. I can't seem to get past this point. I've looked on-line and people are saying its a photoshop bug in the latest version but no work around. Can anyone help please?

It looks more as a system permissions error. Try to change the saving destination just in case …

Does this happen saving all files using Save for Web or just this one? If just this one, can you share the file? (hyperlink to CC files or dropbox)

Where are you trying to save this file? Internal harddrive, server, external drive? Does this happen saving to all locations? (e.g. try saving to the desktop?)

 

Check Security & Preferences... Privacy. 

Where is Photoshop allowed to access?

Hi Jeffrey, 

 

Its happening with all files. I've just tried creating one with a circle and square animation which is really simple and it still will not do it. I've also tried saving to desktop, external hard drive and internal hard drive will all the same result. I'm panicing a little as my client is waiting for these amimated gifs. 

 

Cheers

Paul

Yes all good. I've seen a few online articles saying is a bug within the latest Photoshop. I'm not sure what version to downgrade to. Any help?

If you create a new user account on macOS, and launch Photoshop in that user account, does it work?

I ran into this issue and found a solution using information from another forum. For me, it had something to do with Dropbox backups. I turned off the backup of my files that was going to Dropbox and re-tried exporting the photo in legacy format (save for web). This time instead of the error message I got a popup to allow permissions for it to write to the destination folder. I granted it permission and the export was successful. After the successful export I was able to re-enable Dropbox backups and the exporting continued to work without an error.

 

I hope this helps.
