hello every one i need help i have just installed photoshop 5 and when i went to save an image i could only save a a PDD file, the problem is i'd like to open these images in different programs on my computer meaning i need to change the file type to jpeg or bitmap but i do not know how to do this or get the option up to save the files as jpeg. Is there somthing i can update or download to allow me to change the saveas file types?

In all likelyhood there is something unique about the file itself that is restricting your ability to save as a different file format. Check to make sure that your image has only four Channels or less, that it's in RGB or Greyscale, not CMYK, and that it is Flattened, with no extra Layers. Any of those might restrict you from saving as a jpeg that you can view on the web.
