Was wondering if anyone has come across this. When working on a jpg in Photoshop, I jump to image ready to optimize the image and I get this message "Active tool cannot be used on an optimized image" when I click on the image to optiimize it. It hasn't been optimized and is around 185k. I thought it might be a glitch in PS so I installed Version CS and still getting the same error

Thank You

Why is there a need to optimize your image in imageready when you can do it in ps too?

File > Save for Web...

True, I just like IReady. I have been opening the images directly with IR and not jumping from PS. I totally forgot about the "save for web" feature in PS. I have been using PS almost since it first came out and started using IR when they 1st put in together with PS. Old habits I guess.

Thanks

Yes I have been using the "save for web" feature now. Force of habit from years of jumping to image ready "Save for web" envokes a lighter version of IR anyway and I'm finding it much faster as well
