Save Photoshop in jpeg

When you open a file in Photoshop,in most of your cases it will be jpeg, unless you have shot in RAW and then you probably will have a Tiff file to open.

* The first thing you do is to convert it to 16 bit (Image/Mode/16 bit)

* If you have set your color settings to Profoto, then the file should be in Profoto, after conversion at entry, or if not, then convert it to Profoto (Adobe 98 is acceptable if you don't have the Profoto option): Edit/Convert to Profile/ Select Profoto or Adobe 98 in the 'To" menu.

* From then on, do what you have to do, then "save as" the new file in Photoshop format (probably its original name with "_Edit1" Hence the name " yourtitle_edit1."

* Assuming that you have done the work in layers as I showed you how, you need to flatten it in order to save it a jpeg: Layers/Flatten.

* Then convert it to sRGB: Edit/Convert to Profile, choose sRGB in the "To" menu.

* Convert it back to 8 bit: Image/Mode/8 bit.

At this point you can reduce it to 600 px and save it as a file for the web and post it on your blog or elsewhere.
