Problem with Save As

Apr 16, 2012 5:56 PM

When I try to create a Save As TIFF file, although TIFF shows in the Format line, what is created is a pbm file.  It does it every time.  Is there some way for me to create a TIFF file using Save As?

    Go delete the plugins that you mistakenly copied from a previous version of Photoshop, or disable the additional plugins folder that you mistakenly pointed to the plugins from a previous version of Photoshop.

     

    Copying plugins from an older version is going to cause conflicts, as you just saw.

    Jack, the Photoshop CS6 beta does not have a basic problem of mixing up file types.

     

    The problem pretty much HAS to come from Photoshop CS6 enumerating the file format plug-ins from another version of Photoshop.  Go look again.

    Or go look at the Photoshop System Info dialog, and see where the duplicate plugin is coming from.

     

    Either you copied the plugins into CS6, or you use the additional plugins folder preference.

    Duplicated plugins from a previous version are the known cause of the file type menu getting out of sync in the save dialog.

     

    Somewhere, you do have duplicated file format plugins.
