Original file turns modified after “Save for Web…”

Hi everyone!


I'm with a little question.


What happens to the edited file after saving its copy using the “Save for Web…” command? Why the original, unmodified file turns into “changed” (with * symbol after its name)?


P. S. The same behaviour is in the Illustrator.

    It's because the original file did get changed, because the Save for Web settings were changed. Photoshop saves most Save for Web settings so that the next time you use Save for Web, you don't have to set all the options from scratch.


    I tested this by opening a file and using Save for Web without changing any settings, and that time the original document did not ask me to save before closing.

    As Conrad said, SfW stores info in your file, that's why it will register as changed. Same when you print stuff and change settings....
