Animated GIF > save for Web (legacy) ends too large

I created an animated GIF on a work plan which is 768 x 90, but the Dimensions of the Document indicate 1456 x 416 (a lot of the images fly in and "shrink").

When I export as a PNG or JPG image it only exports the work plan, so that it remains the size I want to (768 x 90); but when I export > save for Web (Legacy) which is the only way to create an animated GIF AFAIK, it is exported to 1456 x 416.

How can I get to the exit of the GIF animated image to the size of the artboard? Thank you.

New export > export as a workflow is not animated gifs, currently exporting. It's probably something that will be supported in the future, however.

To export a gif animated image in PS using Photoshop CC 2015, do not work plans. Please use export > save for Web (legacy) option without work plans. The backup of the Web feature levels is not support work plans and probably never will be. Instead, we will continue to improve and to the export as a workflow.

  • GIF/save for Web problem (PSE 7)

    I tried searching for an answer to this problem, but nothing seems to fix everything that happens.

    Recently, I had to replace my laptop and from Windows XP to Windows 7.  I transferred the PSE 7 from the old system to the new system and have had no problems with it - until now.  I have an image in format Photoshop 52 - layer I want to save as an animated .gif, with each layer as a different image.  File > > Save As has the ability to save layers as frames, but if I check it, then click on 'Save', nothing happens.  Nothing at all.  On my old system, I would get a new dialogue with options like the quality, duration by frame, loop, etc., but that doesn't happen any more, and there is nothing to save (if I'm going to find the new .gif file, it's just not there). If I do not choose "Layers in images", dialogue .gif does so very well and it has no difficulty to save it as a static .gif file.  But it seems that she won't just save it in animated format.

    I'm having the same problem with "save for Web".  Or the option of the file menu or typing command will bring up dialogue to let me record this way.  He thinks maybe a second, but does nothing else and does not record the image.

    I tried to reset the layout, just in case the dialog box has been moved somewhere that I wasn't just to see and I tried to reset the preferences to save it for the Web, but none of these things worked.  No explanation as to why a .gif animation 'layers as images"is the only format that is not saving correctly?

    I also tried old connections animated that I created with XP, and they will not re - save as animation connections either opening.  I get her "do you want to save changes" dialogue, but clicking on 'Yes' does nothing and does not record updates.  I am at a total loss for why this feature no longer works.

    If you right click on the shortcut of items and choose Run as administrator,

    It does make a difference or not save for Web work?

    Registration of the Web dialogue box is the same dialog box that you would get when checking the layers as frames

    in the Save as dialog box.


  • 'Save for web' as 'legacy' in Photoshop CC (2015)?

    Anyone know why (a) ' save for web' is now "legacy" (under export) and (b) the question of whether something will replace it?

    I know, it sucks. That's what I found:

    From the 2015 version of CC in Photoshop, the file > save for Web option has been moved to the File > Export > save for Web (legacy) alongside new export options.

    For these new export options, see export of work plans, layers and more.

    and this is the link need you:

    Using Photoshop | Export of work plans, layers, etc.

    It is related to the new option of work plans they have.

  • is there a way to save the configuration in save for web?


    I am the latest version under cc 2015.1, camera raw, it's all updates, 10 64-bit windows pro

    I used to use ave for the web to upload picture to host image

    Well, when I select file-> save for web-> legacy

    is there a way to set the zoom ratio to adapt it to the discovered ?

    It is always 100%

    I tried to save the settings, but I do not register a zoom rate

    You need to change this setting.

  • Save for web is not defined at 72 dpi

    For some strange reason PSCC stopped to change the resolution of the images at 72 dpi when you use 'save for web' legacy. Just keep the image at the same resolution that he began.

    Anyone got a fix?

    Anyone know of a different method in PSCC change dpi images without changing its dimensions?

    Thank you


    Perhaps the problem is that you have the 'All' value that respects the value of the ppi in the file when you use save for Web to metadata.

    Set it to 'None' or a setting lower than 'all '.

    Conversely, if you want to use SFW and keep your ppi 300, the value 'All' setting or it will default to 72.

    72 DPI refers to the old Mac screen resolution and is a basic rule for web developers, even if 114 or 226 is more common these days.

    72 for Mac and for Windows 96 were common monitor resolution standards in the 1990s.

    And by definition, a GIF image is optimized! A GIF is not the same size of the PSD file, and you are mistaken in thinking that you want it to be. If you are trying to achieve the slightest loss of quality, regardless of the size of the file, then you need to adjust your settings to save for Web.

  • Save for Web is now up to GIF on each record?

    Up to the latest version, the save for Web dialog box remember the type of file that you saved last as. Now, every time I open it... interrupt my workflow, it is up to the pretty spectacular GIF format that I use save for Web several times a day to record versions of the wired models.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I do not see any place to set a default file type save for web.

    Am I missing something?

    I don't understand the reasoning behind this change. People generally use the same type of file when they export and RARELY is it GIF more. But even if the GIF was still popular, I would say it is much more common that you export the same type of file most of the time that put permanently.

  • 'Save for web' seems to be stuck on gif - how to fix?


    I've just updated my Photoshop CC 2014 (today) and hoped that this problem should go away.

    When I "save for web" for the past weeks, the changes that I have on the right do not affect the image. Saving to gif format and do not change size, etc. as before.

    See the screen shot comparison. Thanks in advance for any help with this.


    Your screen Capture Png leader showing save for Web in high quality Jpeg setting has a color of the monitor profile.  This seems strange to me. You wrote that with these settings save for backups of Web, an image. gif.jpg not.  You did not post the Gif, nor capture the current backup file that record the dialogue for web displays before the Save.  If indeed save for Web but one gif not a .jpg file try to reset your user ID Photoshop Settings.

    Also what color space are you publishing in?  Image png you posted has a display profile not a normal color space, changing in like sRGB, Adobe RGB or ProPhotoRGB... Image posted on the web should have colors sRGB in the and do not need a color profile.   A PNG file on the web with a display color profile is not what one would expect to see...

  • The image exceeds the size to make save for Web and devices has been designed

    I just upgraded from CS3 to CS5. I assumed that save for Web & devices would have been redesigned so that it would not complain with modern large pictures they were just too big!

    However, it still doesn't work. I just do not get it. Photoshop in general now is editing of very large images. It should be able to manage them also in this function.

    Is this just a legacy message, or is it really true that this feature can only manage small images?

    Save for web is designed to optimize the web graphics by squeezing the bytes while retaining the quality.  It was not intended to scale and then optimize large images. This is shown in the alert message.

    You can present a feature request to Adobe to change the original intent of SFW.

    SFW can display 4 versions of an image in different types of optimization. We must save the 4 temporary files. Imagine trying to save a huge image 4 times at a time through the "File-Save As. That's why you see this warning message. It takes time to build these temporary files, especially when you throw a huge file at home.

    Consider a solution scripted this one where a copy of your image is first reduced and then transferred to SFW.
