Hi:

I opened a Nikon NEF file in Photoshop 7, did some editing, and tried
to Save As... The only options I had were PSD, TIFF and JPEG 2000. Any
idea why it won't let me save as straight JPG?

cheers,

G;

Why would you shoot raw and save as jpeg?
If you are working in 16 bit color you cannot save as jpeg.

I shoot raw for the same reason everyone else does - so I can decide
myslef what to throw away in the comfort of my armchair!

Thanks for the pointer about bit depth - it's the trick I was missing.
