Save, save as, export - Photoshop now following Gimps lead (almost)

I just read an article that Photoshop has redone it’s save options. You can no longer “save as” in a format that doesn’t support the contents of the file. Layers for instance. It’s unclear to me if you can still “save” a file you opened as a jpeg.

I really didn’t like, and still don’t, the stricter save, save as, export functionality introduced in Gimp a couple of years ago but now it seems Adobe is following suit. I always found it was overly handholding and prevented a smooth workflow for quick adjustments to jpegs etc. Adjusting curves in 20 images becomes a lot more cumbersome when you can’t just save the file.

Anyway it looks like Adobe is now following suit!

In GIMP, the file drop down there is the Overwrite option. This only shows up once you have loaded an image. That should smooth things out for you.
