My images were all able to be saved as JPEG however now when i goto "save as" the jpeg option is not there. I have not changed camera and the file sizes are the same etc so unsure as to if its something to do with the new update. Please do not tell me the file sizes arte too big as they are exactly the same sizes as they were previously, unless PS has now redused the file size able to be saved as a JPEG in which case what a joke...

If your file contains items that are not supported in your required format (e.g. layers or 16 bits/channel) then the file format is moved to the Save a Copy menu. This was driven by changes in the Mac Operating System, although the changes are applied to both Mac and Windows versions to keep the two aligned. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/whats-new.html Dave

Nothing had changed at all, it was set at 8bit with RGB color, it had a background copy and a curves layer nothing I would assume would be not supported. But the save copy thing has worked, dont know why they had to change to that but hey ho... il know for future. Until it changes.

jpg supports none of that. 

jpg accepts the Background Layer and no other Layers.

I am sorry to hear about this. Really it is a very stupid change. PS is not a good choice for dummies, for proof usage this "improvement" is only time waisting reveranve to MAC.

By the way: ofter last update PS hang-up when I drag layer from one window to another.

Considering all the people who destroyed layered files by paying too little attention when saving pdfs that seems debatable. (edited)

"Considering all the people who destroyed layered files by paying too little attention when saving pdfs that seems debatable"

That is another benefit of the new Save As /Save a Copy split. There was a hidden "gotcha" in the old method where saving a PDF without compatibility then, without closing, using Save As to save the same document as PSD. This unchecked the layers in the save dialogue and lost all layered work. There have been many threads on this over the years. Now with Save a Copy it doesn't happen - Save a copy as PDF then use Save As to save the main doc as PSD and all is preserved.

The change was driven by changes in the Mac operating system and Adobe had no choice but to address it. It was applied to Mac and Windows versions to keep them aligned - the last thing we want is the two versions to diverge to the extent that you need to save one way on a Mac and another on Windows.

In reality though the change does make a lot of sense. If a file format can save all the content of your document it appears in Save As. If it cannot keep all the content and saving would lose some of that content (e.g. layers, bit depth, hidden pixels after using crop without deleting cropped pixels..etc) then it appears in the Save a Copy menu.

If the open image CANNOT be saved as a jpg (possible reasons: absence of Background Layer, Multiple Layers, 16bit, …) you can save a copy via 

File > Save a Copy

I'm having the same issue. The PSD file in question for me is a template that I've been using for over a year. The only that changed was an update from Adobe. I used to be able to save as a jpeg from "Save As" but now I have to save as a copy? It slows down my process and since I work in a fast pace environment I can't be slowed down.

I agree that this is annoying Adobe reverance for dummies and Apple. But let it be. Hope I will adapt to this after N <skipped> shouts:) By the way  - I revert to 22.31.1 release to keep calm myself at this moment.
