Hello;

I am wondering if it's possible to export from a 16 bit PSD file to a high resolution Jpeg file.

I cannot see how this can be done - and I have spent quite a bit of time trying to figure it out.

Perhaps someone can guide me through the steps if it's possible.  Thank you......Iain

Yes.  Use the Save as dialog.  Your resulting image will be an 8-bit JPEG.  The PSD needs to be saved from Photoshop with the 'Maximize Compatibility' mode turned on.  (You'll see no image in PM if you didn't save it that way.)
