I created a banner for my site using photoshop. When I SAVE AS the image, it saves as a photoshop file. How can I get it to JPG/GIF so I can actually use the image? Obviously I tried saving it as the other file types but then when I open it up, it won't open.

Make sure you're not in CMYK mode, It's happened to me several times that I'd save a jpg in cmyk mode and it won't display correctly.

I think the best way to save a document in Photoshop is using the "save to web..." option. You can choose whether you would like it as a JPG or a GIF etc etc and you are minimizing the size of the image memory size (therefore making it a faster image to load when you have it on your website).

SB said it best, File/save to web/ pick jpg or gif..........OR just save as and pick jpg for file format, will be a regular high quality jpg without compression.
good luck
