Adobe Photoshop allows users the flexibility of saving and storing their files in a wide range of formats. JPEG is one of the most commonly used and requested image formats. Saving images as JPEGs in Photoshop is a quick and simple process.
Things You'll Need
- Adobe Photoshop
- Pre-existing Photoshop-compatible files
Open your Photoshop application and the file you would like to save as a JPEG by selecting “File-> Open” from the application menu at the top of your computer screen.
Make any Photoshop-based alterations necessary to your image.
Select “File-> Save As” from the application menu.
Create a name for the file you will be saving and enter it in the “Save As:” field and select a destination on your computer for the saved file.
Click on the “Format” dropdown and select “JPEG.” Click the “Save” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the dialogue box. You now have a JPEG version of your image saved in the location you selected.
Tips & Warnings
- Explore the “Save for Web and Devices” option Photoshop offers as well if you have a design layout you would like to divide or convert for Web purposes. You can make color and quality adjustments to your JPEGs with this option.
