  • changing default save format from psd to jpeg

    Fixing up a bunch of Jpeg images and want to resave them in jpeg. Photoshop, of course, wants you to save them in psd by default. Is there a method so you don't have to go through all the key strokes to change from psd to jpeg for each image you save? Is there a method to permanently change the default save file type to jpeg?

    It'll only ask you to save them as a PSD if you've done something to the file that can't be saved as a jpeg, such as using layers.

    If you've got a plain flat file that was originally a jpg, it'll still default to jpg.

    One way of bypassing the problem is to write an action that saves as a jpg to a specified folder, and running that action each time instead of doing save as.

Anyway, I like some of these pics and want to save them to a disk and possibly work on them in PS7. But, I'm under...

      Save to what format?
      by kenwood
      Hi I have been saving to psd format to preserve layer information but the resulting file is too big (50-100mb each). Is there an alternative?

      Save unfinish photo as Jpeg or Tiff
      by Gerald McClaren
      I would like to know if the picture you are restoring is a Jpeg and you restore part of the picture, do you save the unfinish photo as a Jpeg or Tiff.
