Can't save TIF file as JPG

Can't save TIF file as JPG

Can't save TIF file as JPG

I have a TIF file I'd like to save as a JPG file. But the options in "Save As" do not include the JPG format. I've converted the TIF image to RGB Color 24-bit (which JPG supports, right?), I have no layers, no masks to be removed and no "combine objects" option available.

What obvious thing am I missing?

I can create a blank JPG in same size and resolution as the TIF and then paste the TIF into the JPG. But as a work-around solution it's clumsy and tedious.

TIA for an answer to WHY.

RE: Can't save TIF file as JPG

Go to File-> Web Image Optimizer

That should produce the results you are looking for as opposed to "Save As" - assuming version 11 or higher.  Older versions have different methods.

RE: Can't save TIF file as JPG

Thanks for the reply. I'm using Corel 8, and looked around for something along the lines you indicated. I found the answer under File -> Publish to Internet. The JPG was formed during that process.

Thanks again.

RE: Can't save TIF file as JPG

I am using an xp laptop with Internet Explorer... for some reason.. I have LOST my ability to RIGHT CLICK... you know normally you can save and do some other things with the right click ...

It is totally DEAD>.. I have run my Nortons Scanner thinking that I had a virus or something.. but nothing shows up.

I tried to reset under the Internet Options/Tools on the Explorer top bar but no options for the clicker..

any suggestions.


RE: Can't save TIF file as JPG

It is quite possible your "right clicker" died - this happens.  My suggestion would be to try an external mouse.  Most USB mice are around $15, and this will let you know if it is a software issue or not.

why not "export" instaed of save as...does this help?...bernard
