Im using the Nikon D750, still learning. I was taking lots of photos the other weekend. When I loaded them onto my imac then into Elements, I noticed after editing some photos were photoshop but most were jpeg? I made no alterations during the shoot. Please can anyone advise. Thankyou.

If, as you say, this happens after you have edited the images, then the 'photoshop' ones - presumably with a .psd suffix - are because you have forgotten to flatten the image after applying one or more layers.
You just need to reopen the images in Elements, flatten image and re-save.

The default 'save' for Photoshop is .PSD, if you wish to save as any other format you will need to tick the little arrow at the end of the 'Save as type' label (lower bar on the Dialogue box) which will be open. This will give you a choice as to which type you wish to save as!

If you do that then you can choose the file type and it then it should not be a photoshop file.


This is the list of possible file types and I would suggest you save as Tiff rather than Jpeg as Jpeg is a Lossie file type - it can decrease the pixels count in the image, although for posting on the internet it usually has to be Jpeg.
