    Issue with saving JPG's


      I have an issue with Photoshop CC that I am hoping is just a setting because at present it is a real PITA.


      I have photos in Lightroom that I have exported in JPG format. I want to bring them into PS and then apply a simple crop to them. I have the option to delete outside the crop area selected.


      Crop works fine but when I try to save I can simply save it as a JPG. Rather PSD comes up as the option. If I select JPEG from the dropdown the "Save as copy" is active and I end up with two images or I have to change the file name.


      Other versions let me open up JPGs, alter them and then save them as JPGs without issue so what is going on here?

          Hi Paul.  Can't leave a fellow Kiwi hanging in the wind ;-)


          So long as you have Crop options set to Delete Cropped pixels, and have no layers, paths selections etc. you should be able to aimply use Ctrl/Cmd s to resave the JPG.  What you might need to do if it defaults to PSD for the first image, is use Ctrl/Cmd key while clicking on JPG from the file format options.  After that, I would expect JPG to be the default.

            Usually when Photoshop defaults to PSD it means there's something about the document can't be saved in JPEG format - an extra channel (e.g., selection saved) or data beyond the edge of the crop (you've covered that) or the fact that it has a non-Background layer, or something...


            Can you screengrab your environment at the time when it wants to save as PSD (but without the file-save dialog blocking the view)?  Save the image as a PNG or JPEG and post it here via the little camera icon just above the editor box.
