When I use the "pull down"menu and select a file format to "save as" The actual file format name is off by 1.
In the pull down "format" menu the order of the formats is
When saving "test.psd" as a TIF file, the name in the "save as title box gets a .sct extension (Test.sct)
In order to actually save as TIF file I need to select Photoshop 1.0 and the title will receive a tif.
It's not the end of the world- just getting a little irritating
Let me guess: you're on MacOS, and you copied a bunch of plugins from a previous version of Photoshop.
Go delete the plugins you copied from a previous version of Photoshop - they're causing the problem (because of duplicated file formats).
Never copy the Photoshop plugins from previous versions - obsolete versions of plugins can cause even more serious problems.
I'm running OS10.8 on a new machine. I migrated old software. I had CS3 on the old machine. Installed CS6 as a new serial number. (not an upgrade). I deleted what I could from my application folder and some CS3 preferences when I found them. My plug-ins folder for CS6 does not contain any old plug-ins.
Could be there are some files lurking but I could not find an uninstall file for CS3.
Either you copied plugins in to the CS6 Plug-Ins folder (which should be empty except for third party plugins), or you set the "additional plugins folder" preference to point to an older version of Photoshop (just turn it off).
I had turned on additional plug ins folder because I was having some problems with the only third party software in my plug ins folder. (OnOne resize)
Turning it off did the trick. I restarted Photoshop and a TIF is now a TIF.
How do I find these and do I need to delete them. I have used Camera raw and there doesn't seem to be any issues. If some of these are legit plug-ins why don't they show up in my plug ins folder?
Thanks for your help
Those are there, just bundled into a single plugin ("standard multiplugin") in the required plugins folder.
Again, your plugin-ins folder only contains third party plugins -- but most of those are plugins that come with Photoshop.
Perfect Resize 7.5 is the only one that you've added.
