Help required by Elements users

I know there's a couple of you out there....

I use Elements 6, and have decided that I really must get the hang of shooting in RAW. When I open the pics in Elements RAW converter, I can't seem to find the option to save it as a JPEG file. Amongst others, it gives me the Photoshop option of a PSD (?) file, but I don't want that.

Can anyone help, please?

I seem to remember my Dad had this problem with six before he switched to Aperture.

I've just opened an image, adjusted it, clicked 'Open' in the RAW converter box and opened the RAW file directly in Elements and it allows me to save as JPEG.

Nope - tried it again but no 'standard' JPEG save option. I do get the JPEG2000 option, but that's no good.

Oh well, I suppose I'll have to get the book out....

I haven't got PS Elements 6 any more (as have upgraded), have you tried the "save to web" menu, isn't there a jpeg option under there somewhere?

If you can't get it to work you could have a look at Rawtherapee, it'll process RAW and JPEG's and it's free. You'll find it if you Google it.

Thank's Alan, I've downloaded it and am currently trying to find my way around it.

You need to change the file type to 8-bit IIRC before you can save it as a JPEG. This caught me oout when I first got Elements.  It's done automatically for you in Elements 7 and above

Elements 6 stays set at the bit depth you select (8 bit is the one as Chris says) the last time you used it.

Don't bother changing to another software package unless you want a serious brain-ache.

You can give me a call if you need to be talked through what you need in Elements 6. If Elements reads your cameras files then there's no need to use anyhing else.
