If your document has multiple layers, you're going to need to do File > Export and either Export As or Save For Web to save your image as a JPG.

Hope that helps,

You're working on a 32-bit file. Convert your file to 16 bits or 8 bits.

Try what Mr. Tranberry wrote. Sometimes I think I see that even with 8 bit, but it must be my eyes. However I just changed an 8 bit picture to 16 bit picture and the JPG option was there, to save. I think Divine and I have haunted programs. Does you [copy] [paste] work? Mine along with a bunch of other stuff is broken. Good Luck!

JPEG only supports 8 bits per color (and no layers). Photoshop may offer to save as JPEG when you have a 16 bits file, but if you choose that option then your image is saved as an 8 bits JPEG copy.
