    Hi, I am trying to save a Photoshop File as a JPG file.
    I have merged the layers down, yet I do not see JPG there as an option to save. Am I leaving out a step somewhere? How can I get the JPG option for saving this file? I'm using Photoshop CS3 on Mac.

    Same country as Santa Claus
    Try going to image>mode> and have rgb and 8 bits/ channel selected.

    After you do that, go to Save for Web/Devices instead of Save As. You'll have many more choices there when saving.

    Changing it from 16 channels to 8 channels made JPG appear as an option. Thank you much!
