Believe if you save jpeg for web you may loose paths.
Yeah. That's my understanding too. Save as a JPG can support paths. Save For Web as JPG does not.
I am NOT using "save jpeg for web" just to be clear.
If I were, then the other image wouldn't be keeping any of its paths either.
I am using "Jpeg" in the Save As dialogue box.
If I edit the jpeg that lost its paths after opening it and hit "Save" it gives me the compression options dialogue box. Other jpegs just "save" when I hit save, I've never had a jpeg give me that dialogue box before when hitting just "Save".
If, after opening the image that lost its paths, I paste a path into that image and hit "Save"(using one of the same original paths from the same original psd file), it gives me the compression dialogue box. If I complete the "Save" and reopen the image, voila, the path I pasted into it is still there, and, if I edit the image and hit "Save" it becomes normal again and saves without showing the compression options dialogue box.

There really is no reason for this to happen. There are no differences in the images except for the content of the image and the file names.
I have tried new file names and still the same result.
I have tried working from the Desktop and still the same result.
This is a serious bug.
