How To Save Photoshop As Jpeg

Adobe Photoshop offers users an array of options for saving their work. One of the most popular formats is JPEG, due to its compatibility with various devices and platforms. This post will guide you through the process of saving your Photoshop files as JPEG.

Step 1: Open Your Photoshop Document

Launch Adobe Photoshop and open the document you want to save as JPEG. You can do so by clicking on File > Open and then selecting your file.

Step 2: Check Your Image Mode

Ensure your image is in the RGB color mode as JPEG does not support other modes such as CMYK or Lab color. You can check this by navigating to the Image > Mode menu. If it’s not in RGB mode, convert it by selecting RGB Color.

Step 3: Save As JPEG

With your image open and in the correct mode, it is now time to save it as a JPEG. This can be achieved by following these steps:

  1. Click on the File menu at the top of the screen
  2. Select Save As from the drop-down menu. This will open a new dialog box.
  3. In the dialog box that appears, select JPEG from the Format drop-down menu.
  4. Enter a name for your file in the File Name text box.
  5. Choose where you want to save your file under the Save in drop-down menu, then click Save.
    File > Save As > JPEG > Enter File Name > Choose Saving Location > Save

Step 4: Adjust Quality Settings

Once you click save, a ‘JPEG Options’ box will appear. Here, you can adjust the image quality and file size. A higher value will give you a higher quality image but will result in a larger file size.

    Quality > Enter Desired Value (0 - 12) > OK

After setting the quality, click OK. Your Photoshop file is now saved as a JPEG.


As you can see, saving a Photoshop file as a JPEG is a straightforward process. Just remember to check your image mode before saving, and adjust the quality to your liking afterwards. Happy editing!
