How to fix Unable to save image as jpeg in Photoshop

When you want to save an image file but can’t save it as PNG, JPG, JPEG. And even if you used the RGB color system, this still happens. This error comes from the problem of choosing the wrong color bit display mode on a channel. When designing images, you accidentally switched to 16 Bits/Channel or 32 Bits/Channel mode. In this mode, the hardware must be powerful enough to meet it, so few machines can process images in this format. What you need to do to fix this error is to change the color bit display mode on a channel to 8 Bits/Channel.

1. Quick Guide

Select Image > Select Mode > Select 8 Bits/ Channel > Select File > Select Save as > Save image as PNG/JPG format.

2. Detailed instructions

Step 1: Select Image and select Mode, then choose 8 Bits/ Channel instead of 16 Bits/Channel or 32 Bits/Channel as before.

Select Image and select Mode
Select Image and select Mode then choose 8 Bits/ Channel

Step 2: Select File, select Save as (or keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + S ) to save the image.

Method 2:

We appreciate your feedback on the recent “Save a Copy” change. To address your concerns, we have created two new options in Photoshop 22.4.2 that will enable both revert to the legacy “Save As” workflow and/or omit the addended “copy” when saving as a copy. These options can be found in the File Saving Options section under Preferences > File Handling.

 

To quickly summarize, you will now have the option to revert to the legacy “Save As” workflow (from before recent changes) on both macOS

Conclusion

The ‘Save as’ dialog now only supports file types that retain all your edits, so you do not see JPEG as option if your file is layered or is more than 8 bits/color. If your file has no layers and is 8 bits/color then you will see JPEG as option too. There is a new menu ‘Save a copy’ that can be used to save a layered file as a JPEG (copy).
