The title says it all. I was able to open and save as .png, and also was able to save for web. These are functions that I use regularly. But since Photoshop CC 14.2 .png is no loner supported, and save for web is greyed out.

Check Help -> System Info to see which plugins are available -- it sounds like you are missing several of the required plugins, and may need to reinstall the app.

You are missing ALL of the required plugins.

Either you've moved the app or the Required folder, or something went very wrong with your update.

Either way, you probably need to uninstall and reinstall Photoshop.

I've not moved anything. Do I need to deactivate before I uninstall?

No, because you'd just have to reactivate on the same system.

Uninstall, and reinstall.
