You probably have layers and masks in your document. Try File->Save A Copy. Set the file type as jpeg or bmp, and save it.

I've actually tried what you've added before hand but i still get the same results and it only let's me save it in .psd format.  I think the problems lies when i actually open the document when i open it as RBG.  Thanks for the help thought but I've tried it and that didn't work.

When the only option of saving a file is PSD, that would mean that you have LAYERS in your image.

What you should do is the following:

1) In the layer window, click on the little arrow on the right side
(if you don't have the layers wiindow on the screen, you could click from the menu on Window then Show Layers)
2) Select Flatten layers
3) Now from the Menu select the File > save as and your BMP , JPEG should be available now.

Hope this has helped.
Need more info, just ask
