    I created this image in photoshop but when I save it as a jpeg and view it in any program outside of photoshop all the layers are visible. How do I get the background to be all black and the colors not be washed out like how it is in Adobe?

    On my screen:

    When I save it:

    Thank you!

    I have not had this happen and don't know if this is your solution or not but...
    have you tried saving it as a copy and then flatten the image. This makes all layers into one I believe and you should then be able to view the photo in other applications and they won't see the layers.
    Make sure you save the photo as a copy before you experiment.

    No image. What color space are you working in?

    When you click Save As and the dialog box pops-up, click on the down arrow at the right end of the "Format" box and BMP and PNG are right there on the list along with JPEG.

    You can't see the image? I'm not sure what you mean by color space, could you please expand on that? I'm kind of self-taught on PS, so I don't really know too much.

    I don't see the option for PNG or BMP on the list.

    I see:
    Photoshop
    Photoshop EPS
    JPEG
    Large Document Format
    Photoshop PDF
    Photoshop 2.0
    Photoshop Raw
    Scitex CT
    TIFF
    Photoshop DCS 1.0
    Photoshop DCS 2.0

    I am working in PS CS4.

    Under modes make sure you are not set for 16bit mode or 32 bit set this to 8bit and let us know what your settings are.
    Also make sure you have updated photoshop.

    I just see a little box with a red x in it. But I see the screen shot you posted.

    Color space: Color space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The web is mostly sRGB and most labs want sRGB files for prints, I have my cameras set to capture as AdobeRGB and I use ProPhotoRGB to edit in Lightroom. Most of my putput gets converted to sRGB.

    Offset printers work primarily in the CMYK color space.
