How do you combine two JPEG files and create one JPEG file?

    I have Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE and am trying to combine two JPEG files
    side by side. When I increased the canvas and copied the other JPEG
    file next to the old one (after moving the old picture to the far left
    of the canvas) and then tried to save the new picture, it wants to save
    it as a huge PSD or PDD file. How do I just save it as a JPEG file?
    Thanks for any help. I am a beginner to this, so I know nothing about
    layers and masks, etc.

    Go to Layers/Flatten, then it'll allow you to change your file
    type to JPG on the save dialog.

    Use the File->Save a Copy command.

    In Photoshop 5, it is not necessary to flatten the image in order to
    save a JPEG. That's what the "Save a Copy" command is for.

    Thank you very much. "Save a Copy", I think, was the only thing I
    didn't try.
