Photoshop... ARGHNESS!

I am trying to re-save a picture. Now, I want to save it as a jpg or gif, but it doesn't give me those options, only photoshop connected ones, why? What can I do?

    Try flattening the image first, if you have more than 1 layer you'll only be able to save it as a photoshop file.

    photoshop should give you the option to save as a jpeg or a gif, or one of many other formats for that matter, i think photoshop normally gives the description of the file type then the extension...... if you want to save it as a photoshop image and upload it, im sure i could convert it for you :)
    if its private, dont worry, ill think of something else :)

    How would I flatten it? I am sorry for sounding so dumb, but I am all new to this program :)

    if it is a multilayered image, photoshop will just warn you that it is going to "flatten" it when you save it as a jpeg.... gifs can still support more than one layer i think
