Bring back the JPEG quality slider in Export As...

In the latest M1 Photoshop beta, the Export As... dialog shows 7 quality presets for JPEG rather than a percentage slider. This is an issue, as I'm often trying to get the best image quality under a specific file size, which the slider allows me to do. 7 presets are not enough options. Can a Custom option be added back in?

Thanks for the note; the slider removal was intentional. I can move this over to the main Photoshop forum as a feature request and it will be counted as a 'put it back'.

wtf? Why remove the slider? I often need to set a very specific quality to get the right file size. Please put it back ASAP!! How and where do I vote for this? @mark_dahm

You all know that Export As, Save As and Save for Web all have different compression terms now? Don't you think that's a little ridiculous?

Someone has replaced the percentage slider in the “Export as” JPEG option with a list of words. 

Is this a broken build, or was the change intentionally rolled out? More importantly, how do I get the proper feature back?

I see now that the change was intentional. Which begs the question: why make this the default, instead of adding a way for new users to easily decide?

Also, “Excellent” is ranked further down than “Great”.

The order of "Excellent" and "Great" also bugged me, but it can be argued that they don't actually have a "correct" order give that they're qualitative in nature, not quantitative... a good reason NOT to use this system...

This is UX 101 level of "things that don't make sense in an interface" ...

Good grief Adobe. The slider was one of the my most used tools for the chore of exporting to precise file sizes. This is daft. At least give us a 'legacy' preference.

I would like to have the option to have the slide back as well. Cant believe it's been dumbed down like this. Isnt Photoshop a professional software?!?

This just rolled out in the Intel Mac version as well. Absolutely ridiculous downgrade in functionality, removing fine-grained control over compression vs. quality for an extraordinarily popular file format with a small number of options.

Ridiculous that going from fine control to a set list of options is supposedly an upgrade! And not even the option to choose between them! Bring it back!

I wonder who decided that Great is better than Excellent?

This is very frustrating. Please bring back the slider (with possibility to fine tune the export quality). I thought that PS was intended for proffessional users ... :-|

How could this pass through QA and user feedback?

Here to say ditto, this UI makes no sense:

  • a drop down list is way harder to use than a slider
  • the words used are qualitative, subjective and relative in nature
    • "fair" quality ? according to whom?
    • "better" than "good"? how is that measured?
    • who decided that "Great" is better than "Excellent"?
    • there is no right answer to any of these questions
  • why 7 levels? why not 6, 8, 100? how about letting me type a percentage?

Anyone that sees this, remember to up-vote the main post (green arrow on the top left).

OK — this is the last straw. You guys need to stop changing things that aren't broken, I can't believe you decided to push this to the Intel versions as well. We need either a "Custom" option or just bring back the slider entirely. This is ridiculous. I switched to legacy but cannot come to understand why you would ever make such a change as this.

Please bring back the quality slider.  Not enough control in the other options.  I cannot fathom why this feature has been removed.
