Can't Save in JPEG Form

I am trying to save some images in Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs to upload. However, when I choose Save As, my only choices are: Photoshop, Cineon, Dicom, FXG, IFF Format, etc., through TIFF. I know I have done it before, but what has changed? Have I done something wrong, or do I need to change my preferences? Please help!! Thanks!

  Check the bit depth of the image. I don't know about CS4, but earlier versions won't let you save a 16-bit to jpg. Change the images to 8-bit and see if that fixes the problem.

Pat Lawrence   Glad it solved the problem. Another common cause is that the image hasn't been flattened. No layers allowed in a jpg.
