    Anyone helpme? I have Photoshop 5. I am using it to edit my digital
    pictures. I found that after editing (Changing image
    brightness/contrast) I cannot save it back in JPEG(.jpg) or GIF
    format, I can only save in .PSD format.

    Is there something Iam missing?

    Appreciate any help.

  2. You may have added an extra channel or a layer. JPEG and GIF do not
    support layers.

    If you do anything that creates a laye, you can only save in PSD format. If you
    create any channels, you can't save in GIF or JPEG format as well.

    Use the SAVE A COPY command in PS 5, rather than the Save As command. Save a
    Copy is used to save an image when you have created elements that that image
    format can't accomodate; it flattens the file as it's saved.

    Or, you can use Save for Web.

    Remember, though, that JPEG is lossy. When you save a JPEG, then open it and
    save it again, you degrade the image quality. If you care about quality, do not
    edit and re-save JPEG images! Keep a copy around in .psd format (or some other
    non-lossy format), and if you need to change the JPEG, go back to that .psd and
    make your changes there!
