    It will save in jpeg and in tiff (the only two I've used from elements), maybe some others too, possibly pdf.

    Photoshop converts images to the desired format when you save the file. Patrice was simply saying that it will save (convert) the image to JPEG or TIFF. The answer to your question is yes, it will convert it to JPEG Read your manual about formats and saving files.

    Photoshop creates JPEG when you use the "save for web" command. Perhaps Elements works the same way. Consult your manual.

    Photoshop (and maybe P.S. Elements) use a sub program to convert RAW files...it's called Adobe Camera RAW. If Elements does support A.C.R....you may need to update to the latest version, just go to the Adobe web site.

    Your camera will have come with software to convert RAW files...but you will have to use that software to adjust and convert...then open them in Photoshop.

    There are plenty of other programs that will convert RAW files...and some of them are really good. I've been using Raw Shooter Essentials...it was a free download but it's days are numbered (if it's still avaliable) because Adobe bought it out and created Adobe Lightroom.
