To the frustration of many users, Adobe are phasing out the ‘Save for Web’ function in Photoshop. They are replacing it with ‘Export As’. The eventual disappearance of this function has led to users flooding the Adobe forums with complaints, and Adobe publishing an article, clarifying their intentions.

Ultimately, ‘Save for Web’ is a dated function, although still useful to many of us. Adobe claim that the new ‘Export As’ will allow give us many more options, and open up the potential for further developments. I personally don’t see a huge difference between the two functions. Some have claimed that ‘Export As’ is outputting lower quality images but I haven’t tested this.

Nevertheless, ‘Export As’ is here to stay, and here is a useful tutorial from Terry White showing us what it can do.
