If you want to save as JPEG, you might need to "merge layers" under the layers tab, and convert to 8 bit.

Lauren,

Don't think you're alone in this! There's a lot to find in Photoshop! Feel free to ask any time.

Good luck,

Asher

Do not worry about it Lauren. I have done it hundreds of times more than you have. I forgot the first step of conversion to 8 bit (flattening is not needed for Save As) as when I forget to do that the option of saving as JPEG is greyed out.

And forgetting the 8-bit conversion with TIFFs yields some very odd looking prints. These little frustrations are just part of the learning process and nothing to worry over.

enjoy,

Sean
