Okay, I know this is a dumb head question, but it's a question that deserves an answer. LOL!

I've never saved a Photoshop PSD image to JPEG, I've always saved to GIF format.  Just now I tried saving to JPEG format and realised that I do not know how this is done??!!!

Can someone please tell me.

(I'm laughing so hard at myself!)

Irie.

I'm using Photoshop 5.5, which has Image Ready.

Lessee if i can remember back as far as 5.5. I think it was all done from the Save As menu. Then select JPEG from the pulldown menu and youre good to go. You can also try the Export menu instead of Save As.

Irie,
Did Weed's suggestion not work for you? There are a few other ways that might work, but the one he posted should be correct and the most straightforward. If it does not work I would suggest you check the "Mode" setting for your image, and set it to RGB, then try his method again, as some modes will not save to the JPEG format.
God bless!

You have to first flatten the file, then use the Save As option and should find JPG as one of them.

Flatten under the layers palette.

asatec,
is that only in version 5.5? It is not required in versions 7 or 8.

I use version 7 with updates, some PSDs created require it, others not.  Unsure why.  Using the save function from that platform of layers PSD files does not present the jpeg option, using the save as usually does.
