  • Handling file as GIF in Photoshop/Image Ready

    Software Photoshop CS2/Image Ready CS2

    I was wondering if anyone had experienced this and knows an easy way out.
    I found that Image Ready would allow me to save files in PSD format only, while Photoshop can save in pretty much any format. I remember installing Photoshop/Image Ready together. During the installation I was asked to select file types to be handled by PS and by Image Ready. I selected to have all files to be associated with PS. Now I would like to use Image Ready to work with GIF, but I can not save the file as GIF in Image ready. So far I could not find any way to change the file association that I set at installation, and I would like to avoid re-installing the soft.

    Many thanks.

    Windows? right click on a gif file, choose open, select Image Ready program or browse for it (check always use this program).

      Thank you.
      I can open a GIF file in Image Ready, this is not a problem.
      Unfortunately I can not save a file as GIF, I can only save a file as PSD from Image Ready. I was hoping to find a hidden option to change which program handles GIF, no luck so far.

        OK, I reread your first and it is plain to me now. I don't think file associations have anything to do with what Image Ready can save as. Judging from this list it should be straight forward. I did read a few comments on the web about not being able to save animated gifs.

        from a web search:
        Go to Windows --> Optimize Then Change the format from JPG to GIF
        go FILE - SAVE OPTIMIZED AS and gif is default
        or
        File > View In > (browser) and save

        ImageReady file types:

            Driving me crazy! (about file extensions)
            by dungbeetle
            Hi everyone.

            I've tried everything I can think of to solve this one, but still no luck.

            I don't know if it's just my machine and/or my installation, but Photoshop 7 (I've tried the original and v 7.0.1) insists on adding a .psd extension to the file every time I try to...

            Hi everyone.

            I am hoping that someone can offer some suggestions. I have finished a restoration and, as always, I have created a lower res, watermarked copy to email to my client for approval. For some reason however, Photoshop (CS2) will not allow me to save the file as a jpeg. The...
