Unable to "save for web"

Posted on 2007-11-14

The option to "Save for Web" is greyed out.... can't save for web.  
"save a version", "Save for web" and "revert" - all these options are greyed out.
Running Mac OSX , and never had this problem with the old Photoshop CS.  This one now installed is part of the complete suite..

Any ideas??

Are you working with a 32 bit color-depth image (HDR)?  That's the only place I see the "Save for web and devices" being grayed out.  Or is this for all images?

don't think so.  In "Mode" - it says "8 bits channel"  (ticked)
Is that what you mean?  If now, how do I determine the bit color depth?

Is this for all images or just one you're currently working on?  The only other thing I could do to get those items (particularly the "revert" menu item) to be disabled is to start a transform (CTRL-T) and not finish it.

it seems to be for all the images.  All the images have are on a key,(separate drive) which were copied from my ( pc XP Windows) .  They were scanned into Photoshop CS on my pc, then transferred to the powermac G4 using the key.

Ok, I've solved it.  It seems that one of the Photoshop folders has been dragged onto the some time..perhaps during the install.  Dragged it back into the correct folder, and it all works as it should.

I suppose I should award myself the points...  :-)  But, as I'm probably responsible for the problem in the first place...  I guess not.

Thanks anyway!
