Photoshopped Pics Not Showing Through

I made some edits to pictures using photoshop layers (hue, levels, etc). Then saved as a jpeg into iphoto. These few shots are not transferring into blurb—it shows as a blank page when it loads. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Did you do a "save as" jpeg or "save for web"?

Did you flatten the layers before saving?  If not, and you had one of your adjustment layers slected, then it could be that is whay you will have saved as a jpeg.

 As a double check, does the newly save jpeg open okay in Photoshop?

No to both. I am new to photoshop and was just playing around. And, you are right, I cannot open in photoshop—it says no correct jpeg marker. I may just start over with new copy of picture. Thanks.

No offense but layers are a little irrelevant since Photoshop will not save as a jpeg if the image has layers, the only option for saving a jpeg with layers is JPEG 2000. You can, however, save for web if the image has layers. Photoshop will simply flatten the image automatically when doing a save for web.

 I asked earlier about which way the image was saved spcifically because you want to use "save as JPEG" for printing and not "save for web".

HEy jrabthearab

don’t feel bad I did the same thing…I asked the forum and and the advice I got was to flatten the pic them save it as JPEG.
Note that once you flatten a pic you can’t go back an edit it. So save a PSD. copy and then open it, flatten the pic and select "Save as copy" to jpeg. That way you have the PSd. to edit at a later date.

Thanks for the help pictureme.  And the discussion on your link was helpful as well.
