Hi all,

Is there a way to "save as" in Preview anymore?
When an image is too big and I don't wanna spend 15 minutes opening Adobe Photoshop, I normally do it in Preview, by going: File > Save As.. then overwrite the old picture, but before that a dialogue opens and I drag the file quality down.

I can't seem to do this now.

All this version talk is a little confusing right now.

It's been a long long long day and things like this get me stressed!!
I guess for now Pixelmator will do :)

Thanks!

File-Duplicate. Save it, overwrite it as normal.

I think the option you are looking for has been renamed "Export as..."

I swear that wasn't there before... honest! .. How did I miss that?!

Sorry, I hadn't had my fix of coffee all day! I tend to get cranky, very very cranky. LOL

Thanks for your help, working good now :)

Doesn't Lion now let you lock a document, forcing it to be saved as a duplicate?

Yes, but you can make a duplicate any time without locking by using the export or duplicate commands.

Interesting.

Is it now Export as... for everything in Preview? Like for PDF's, etc?

If not, then that's confusing. If so, then I can see how it makes sense I guess, since Preview doesn't really create anything on it's own.
