Photoshop: PNG file not saving clipping path

Open a .png. Add a path. (Name the path if you like. Set it as a clipping path. Go for your life.) Press Cmd-S. Press Cmd-W. Window closes with no alert. Path is not saved. Nothing is saved. The .png file is unchanged. Your path is gone. Aargh.

Cmd-S shouldn't pretend to have worked when it hasn't.

This issue was fixed a while back. Should work correctly in current versions of Photoshop. Thanks.

Howdy Adam,

Yup. This sure as heck looks like a mistake. I've gone ahead and created a bug for it. Hopefully, we'll be able to get to the bottom of this soon.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Thanks,
David

PNG doesn't support paths or clipping paths.
So yeah, the document should still be marked dirty and not close without a warning.

I'm having a similar problem with Photoshop 20.0.1. I create a clipping path and then save the file. Import the photo into InDesign. No clipping path to be found. Open the file in Photoshop 19.1.7, no clipping path is found in the file.
Photoshop 20.0.1 doesn't seem to be saving the clipping path at all.

Pngs don't support saving paths so save as a psd or tif for importing into InDesign.
