How to set up Photoshop cc 2021 for saving jpeg format?

I usually shoot RAW and save TIFF. TIFF format takes up too much drive space and I do not have to save every image as TIFF format. So, I start to save most of my images as jpeg format.

I have a problem when I save for jpeg format. I have to click on "save a copy" first, then I have the options to select jpeg format. It saves as TIFF format automatically if not click "save a copy" before saving.

How to set up Photoshop cc 2021 for saving jpeg format without clicking "save a copy" first?

Thanks.

Go to Edit>Preferences>File Handling and tick the box for "Enable legacy Save As"

Photoshop - love it, hate it, and love it again... :cheesygrin:

Try to flatten your image before saving ... does this help?
Thanks.
Sometimes, I do flatten the images prior to saving, sometimes I do not. It doesn't make any difference. Have to hit "save a copy" if I want to save jpeg format.

Layered file won't save. Says it's saving in the background but that's been going on for an hour. Have been using Photoshop for 30 years; this is new. Just bought the latest version.
