I've saved some photos (personal and off the net) that I would like to have enlarged. Some are in Adobe In-Design (PageMaker) and others are on Drive C. They need to be transferred to a thumb drive (I believe) as a jpeg. I've done this years ago but now can't remember.

What are the file extensions of the files you're trying to convert to JPEG? Are they really InDesign (.indd) files? Photoshop will open PDF files, but not .indd files.

Yes some are .indd - so I understand they can not be converted to JPEG! Is JPG the same as JPEG? also some are PNR can they be? The pictured I bring over from the internet should I bring them over directly to PS or is it ok to place them on Drive C until I need them on the thumb drive? As you can I may be a wee bit over my head here. Thank you for your information - I appreciate.

InDesign may be able to convert indd files to JPEG, but Photoshop cannot. If you save a PDF from the indd files, then Photoshop could open the PDF and save that as JPEG.

JPG and JPEG are the same thing.

I'm not familiar with PNR files. Photoshop doesn't open or save them.

It's fine to save files on your local hard drive and only use your thumb drive for moving the files or sharing them.

Thank You - Sorry I meant PNG not PNR. So my JPG (aka JPEG) can be converted) Great news. I'll check this out and get back to you. Do I just repeat this question and ask for you - or will any employee answer?
Again I appreciate - Have a great weekend...

Photoshop will open a PNG and you can then save it as JPEG.
