When I crop a jpg in CS6, it only lets me save as .png. If I don't crop and only alter levels, I can save as jpg. So it is to do with the cropping. Has anyone else had this happen?

My guess is you have "Delete Cropped Pixels" unchecked which is converting the background layer to a floating layer.

That said, if you hit Save you should be able to change the format to JPEG.
