A number of people use Photoshop’s Save for Web export option in place of the new Export option. And, as a consequence, they may face the Adobe Save for Web Error. There are a lot of issues that users have encountered with CS6 and GIFs.
The Adobe save for web error message reads as-
“Could not complete this operation. An unknown error has occurred.”
Fix 1: Check the Image Size
- If this error continues, try to check the image size and compare it to the canvas size.
- In addition, ensure that the size of the image is not huge like 20,000 inches.
- Try to make it smaller or change the measurements to pixels, if it is not already.
- Also, make sure the size of the canvas neither larger nor smaller than the image size. If it is so, try to convert it to the same size as the image.
- Try again to save for the web. This should definitely work, and in case it doesn’t, then remove the profile files. After that, restart your system and launch Photoshop.
Fix 2: Some Alternative Fixes
If the animation is too big for your system, some of the possible processes would be:
- Get more RAM
- Export on another system with more RAM
- Render the image as a PNG or video sequence and convert it to GIF with some other tool with better memory management than Photoshop.
