    Hey folks....I have PScs2 am bedazzaled with can be done to a photo!

    Here's the issue....having a d70 and shooting in the raw format (nef) I use Bridge to view which to import into PS. First it goes to Camera Raw then to PS as a nef file. Of course I can save in while in CR to a JEP file, but i'd rather do whatever editing in PS. After editing in PS, I want to save it as a JPG file to use wherever, but PS only allows for their formats, with TIFF, and only the new JPEG2000.
    Question: how, what, do I need to do to save that NEF file into JPG directly from PS.
    I hope this is clear.....I'm ready for any responce, please help.

    Thanks, Paul

    Photoshop and every other image editor I've seen will save in JPG format. BTW, it's JPG or JPEG, not JEP, which I haven't heard of. Since JPG is lossy and you are shooting in RAW, in order to not lose data it's best to go from RAW to TIFF. Only save as a separate JPG after you are done editing and if you need one for the web or the lab you are printing at won't take TIFF.

    I also tried saving an NEF to TIFF as you suggested, than tried to save it to JPG...., but again only JPEG2000 is available in the save as box.

    You probably have to change the mode. The image should be in 8-bit RGB right before saving. Otherwise the option may not be available. You could also try "save for web". I didn't think that went disabled and would convert for you, but I haven't worked with NEF images.
