    opening new photoshop file and saving as jpeg
    hey i've been working around this for a while now but im kind of tired of it.

    when im working in photoshop and i hit new... and open a new canvas, why am i only able to save that new file as a small number of file types.. tiff, png, psd, pdf, etc....

    all i want to do is save some files as jpegs and i can only do it if i open an existing image... wtf?!?!? am i just retarded? what am i missing?

    Then don't know, every version of photoshop I've had has been able to create a new image and save it as a jpeg... that's pretty much back to '93.

    the color depth for jpeg is 8bit ... try that, it's to the right of the option where you choose RGB when you create a file

    you probably have it set to 16bit guessing from the formats you listed ...

    PNG is a good example compared to the 8bit GIF, while GIF only has a true/false visibility, PNG gives you a full alfa mask, just a comment

    hope it helps

    saving files in photoshop
    Hi, I am using photoshop CS3 as well. When I create a new file using 8 bit and then go to to 'save as' I am offered 20 options, regardless of whether I am using the custom option or any of the presets, even for video output. If you change the bit rate ie from 8 to 16 then you are only offered a few options. As I understand it 16 bit contains alot more image info and therefore there are only few options that can support it. For most purposes 8 bit should be adequate and therefore offer you alot more options
