Can't save my Photoshop work as a .png anymore


Question

Recently I made an Windows update on my computer, but since the update I can't save my projects as a .png anymore.

This is a major problem for me, because I'm building up the website for our company and I need pictures with transparent backgrounds.

Is this problem relating to the Windows update I've made and why didn't it occur before?

Ensure that your colour profile is set to RGB, you cannot save a CMYK doc as a .png file and therefore will not get the option in your dropdown menu when saving. (Click Image > Mode to do this)

You may have made a document with a bit/channel in excess of 16bit png will not support this. See this site for more details on png specifications.

...There is also the File > Save for Web option! ;)

(In newer versions of Photoshop CC though the function to save for web is still there, the navigation has changed however the keyboard shortcuts are still as follows: ctrl + alt + shift + s (win) or cmd + opt + shift + s (Mac))

Hope this helps!
