Cant export animation file

Cant export animation file

Cant export animation file

i've created an animation and wish to save it as GIF. But when I tried to save, it only gives me a "save as jpg" option.
Any idea how to convert the mode so that I can save it as a GIF animation file?

RE: Cant export animation file

Are you using the 'Save Optimised As' option?


RE: Cant export animation file

ya. If I opened a PNG file, I get "Save as png".
Another way to work around is first save the original image as gif first, then start working on it.

When I was doing, I didn't know and create an animation from the jpg file, only to realise I can't save it as animated gif.
Just wondering if there's any way to force it to save as animated gif.

RE: Cant export animation file

I have never had your problem but these things can be frustrating. I always Jump To Image ready from photoshop and would have created the necessary elements of the animation before jumping to Image Ready.
