View Full Version : CS2 'Save-As' Not Working
07-16-2005, 07:14 AM
I installed CS2 with all patches. I start working on a file in any format (psd, tga for example) and then I want to save as jpg. I start the file/save-as and then when I change the format to jpg the name still registers as the original format. I change the extension but PS still is saving the file in the original format.
I've deleted the preferences, I have even done a repair to no avail. Any ideas?
you need to change the file type and the extension...for some reason PS wont do it automatically.

It's not even that it will save it as a jpg even if I type the extension.
Here's an interesting note, when I switch to using the "Adboe Dialog", JPG is not even an option for "save-as" !
Therefore the "save-as" file options don't include jpg or gif so it appears that Adobe has moved the jpg and gif options to "save for web" option.
How stupid, you think the program would be smart enough so you didn't need 2 commands.
jpeg is in the adobe save dialogue
either your file is in a format that wont save as a jpeg or something is wrong with your install...try a reinstall perhaps

I did do a reinstall.
This is my dialog for save-as using a tga file:
whats wrong with that? can't you scroll up to see jpeg?

yes, but it still is saving it as a targa. PS is encoding it as a targa file with a jpg extension.
I am going to do a complete uninstall. And try again.

Well, its all fixed. I restored an image of my operating (starting from scratch now). I guess something was amiss with my installation and the registry so I wasn't going to get PS working properly.
Thanks for your time halo.
no probs...pity it came down to a re-install...:(

When I worked with the CS2 the first time I had this problem as well every now and then. In my case it turned out that once I changed to 16bit/channel (from 32 downwards) jpeg among a whole lot of other extensions become available in the drop down menu.
