Opening JPGs, then saving them defaults to PSD

Hi guys,

Not sure at which point this change occurred. When I open a JPG, make some quick edits, and then hit Command-S (Save), a Save dialog appears with the defaults set to PSD.

 

I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary here.  I've been using Photoshop since 1995.  

 

I open a JPG, make some edits, ensure the image is flattened and in 8-bit, and simply hit Command-S to Save.  Why  does it insist on saving the file as PSD?  This is beyond irritating as I need to execute 4-5 more clicks just to save the file.

 

If anyone has some pointers, I'd surely appreciate it 🙂

Change it in Photoshop preferences.

Thank you Derek.  I appreciate your reply.  

 

Unfortunately for me, this doesn't seem to rectify the issue.  Maybe it's because every JPG opens through Camera RAW and not directly in PS?  

 

I tried ticking off that box as you suggest, and rebooted PS to no avail.  I still get a Save As dialog, albeit this time, it has the JPEG extension selected by default.

 

Needless to say, it prompts me to name, Replace, and finally, choose a JPG compression setting before finally replacing the old JPG.

 

Command S used to just Save it and be done with.  Any tips on what else to try here?

You can find that under Preferences/File Handling.
