  1. What the?
    I created a canvas in photoshop so that I could collage three photos, and it won't let me save it as a jpg.... ? After I finished editing and flattened the image, etc, it still only has options for photoshop formats and TIFF and whatnot. As I was working on it it was a PSD.
    I just want to save it as a jpg. haha. :)
  2. I think you have to save it as a TFF and then save it as a jpeg. It's been a while since I've shot anything other than jpegs, so I don't remember the exact procedure. Good luck!
  3. Convert to 8 bit. Happens to me all the time. I forget that JPEG is 8 bit only
  4. You may have to discard layer masks.
    Try to re save it under a new name .psd and discard any layers or masks, then resave to .jpg:wink:
    Good Luck
  5. Come on Laura.......... Tell us who got it right!!! ;-)

    can't save a 16-bit as a jpg has to be 8-bit to save as jpg
  7. The point I was making is that one cant save to .jpg a file that has saved paths or selections, even tho the file has flattened layers.:wink:
