I've just started learning how to use PS Elements 6 for Mac, and being the technological bonehead I am, I am of course running into problems of my own design. I have an image on my computer titled IMG_1260.psd that I believe I need to convert to .jpg format, but I'm stumped as to how it's done. :confused:
Any suggestions will be appreciated! And I think I'll spend the bulk of the day learning Elements.

It sounds like you need to convert the file to 8bit to enable it to be saved as a jpeg.

Not on a 16bit psd file you won't - you need to convert to 8 Bits/channel first

In CS3 it's 'Image' - 'Mode' - '8 Bits/channel' - Then 'save as'...

When I opened the image in Elements, the file name ended RGB/8, so I followed beezwax advice and it worked. Thanks! I posted the image in the Landscape section.

thats is what happens when you do a "SAVE" not "Save As" the save as command makes it to where you can change the attributes

Sometimes you will have a PSD file which has more than one layer and it will need to be flattened (see bottom of layers menu) in order to have some save options be available to you.

If I open a single layer psd file in CS3 and then select 'Save as' I do not get any option to save as jpeg or any other 8 bit file format.

However, if I go to 'Save for web & devices' the jpeg option is there and this then automatically converts it to 8 Bit mode, but a 'normal' (full exif) jpeg can only be saved by converting to 8 Bit.

Sure, but even from spammers we can demand better service.
