    So I started using this "Duotone" feature to make my black and whites look better, only now I can't "save as" anything but a PSD or whatever. Can't save as a jpg. Anyone explain how to do it. Possible explain why I can't do it now?

    Maybe even explain why duotone actually makes my B+W's look better? Am I even using the process properly?

    Thanks!!

    Is your color mode set to RGB?

    Have you flattened image after modification so you can save as Jpg?

    There is no layers to flatten.

    i think you have to convert the image to greyscale mode first...... then you can save in whatever format...... off the top of my head i think once you've changed it to greyscale.. you can then change it back to RGB.

    Here's the process that I used.

    a) Convert to Grayscale
    b) Selected Duotone (it's only available once you've converted to grayscale)
    c) Picked two 'tones'.
    d) tried to save as jpg.

    it only lets me save as a psd.

    yea, so you have to go back to RGB..... It should let you convert it back..... if it doesn't, change it to greyscale again first.... then RGB. ;)
