Question: How can I save Elements 12 photos edited as other than PSE. I prefer JPEG. Also file forma

I have two problems with my new Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 editing program. I cannot seem to be able to save an edited photo as a JPEG. How can I do that. I only want to save as a PSE file in case I want to return to it later for further modifications.
My other problem is that my program locks up on me. I can only get out of the program by shutting down my computer and restarting.

Jon,
That was my first thoughts too, but I have just done some tests and I don't think that is now the problem.
My test was-
1) Start with a CR2 RAW file and open it with 16 bits/channel
2) Confirm that it is in 16 bit mode - layers not available etc.
3) Save As and JPEG, JPG was an option and it converts it to 8 bit in the output file.
It seems that this has been the case since version 11 - perhaps you could try it to check that I'm not doing something wrong.
I think that Sureaddy's problem is that he is saving it first as a PSE file. After doing that, I can only save it as a PDF or a PSE file.

When first editing an image, I suggest you save it as a PSD (Photoshop file) not as a PSE (Photo Project File). If you are using layers, then you will be in 8 bit mode. Providing you don't save as a PSE file you should then have the option of saving it in JPEG/JPG format.
If you must use the PSE format, you could try using the Save for Web option - that can produce a JPG file.
As for your lock up problem, is there any pattern to when it locks up?
