Hi Guys,

Once edited, I try to save a photo in jpeg mode, and also as a photoshop file. The latter,however, never works as it can't be opened by PS.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Apologies for the simplicity of the question, and thanks in advance.

How, exactly, are you saving the photoshop file? As a .psd? When you try to reopen it with photoshop, what happens?

More likely there is something wrong with your version of Photoshop or operating system. Can you open the Photoshop file in someone else's Photoshop? Resize an offending image to Email able size and I'll check it on mine if you want. apnewton at gmail etc

PSD files (photoshop files) should certainly be openable (if that is a word) by Photoshop. Something is broken somewhere
