    Wrong File Extension after using "Save AS" in PS7 and PSCS

    LenHewitt Level 1
      After using 'Save As' the file extension is incorrect (such as filename.psd.jpg) or on opening an image file saved with Save As Photoshop returns the message "Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop Document".

      There's a setting in 'Tweak UI' under the heading 'Common Dialogs' that offers a choice of disabling 'Enable AutoComplete'.

      If you disable 'Enable AutoComplete' then Photoshop 7 and 8 (CS) will no longer add the appropriate ending to a file when using 'save as'.

      Unfortunately re-enabling this option does NOT appear to cure the problem, and a re-install of the O/S may be necessary.
