Re: psd to jpg
FIrst you should understand the terminology a bit. It isn't important to know where the terms come from though most of the names mean a bit about the file type or the way it is being saved. Tiff for instance stands for Targa Encoded File Format. TIff was the File format the the art world loved in the 90's - and most of the 2000's for saving large high res documents in. A JPEG file format, was and is the best for full color internet graphics, home use and now publications because of its way of compressing a larger file to a smaller file without loosing much of the information in traslation as long as you keep the compression to a minimum or even at its highest level 12 (the one I prefer).
now more to the point your problem is that you are in a Photo Shop Document Mode (PSD file format) in order to save as a JPEG, you might need to go to the file menu and scroll down to save a copy as and click that, then you will find that you can select JPEG file format. The PSD mode sometimes won't allow you to choose this if there are many layers on the file.

There are many reasons that cause this error. you can prefer to use good PSD file repair software. PSD Open File Tool - is the best option to fix all Photoshop file errors
Here the link: https://www.openfiletool.com/psdopen.html
I don't think I've ever seen a PSD file corrupted on disk myself. Often it's a sign of system instability. Did you have a crash or power failure while it was saving (keeping in mind that it may appear to finish before it's actually all the way saved to disk)?
Are your disk hardware and file system healthy? Look in your event logs for any indications of failures.
Try some repair tool: PSD Repair Kit is the ultimate Adobe PSD repair tool that is a must-have for any digital artist, photographer or other professional working with numerous PSD files.
If you are looking to copy and paste the picture you have editted in Photoshop, first you have to save it as something other than a '.psd' (Maybe as a .png or .jpg) After saving the picture, you have to upload it to a photosharing site (Like imageshack.us or deviantart.com, etc.) From there, you can copy and paste it. Or if you're looking to send it in an email, just press the upload button and attach it to the email.
JPEGs were only really intended for monitor display, although they do print up on a home inkjet very well. They should not really be used for any kind of long term storage other than as original image files if that is how they were shot, as every time you save them they degrade due to the compression process used. If you are working in photoshop I would leave them in psd format, especially if you have any layers. Your edited files will store well long term as either psd or tiff files. Tiff supports layers but again unless you need to print them commercially psd will suffice.
Start of by looking at the different types of image file formats as the inputs, for example JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PNG etc. There are loads of them with different pro's and con's for each.
Also take a look at the vector based file formats, and how vector images are scaleable upwards to any size, without loss in resolution.
I'm not sure about the details of your project, but it falls into the 3 main topics of :-
If your images are saved as psd, jpg, etc. you should be able to open with any version of Photoshop. images are not dedicated ot a version, they are just pixel based files. Check the file extensions and if they are psd, jpg, etc. you should be able to either drag on top of the Photoshop Icon or open from Photoshop when the program is running. If you have your preferences set to open these types of images with only Photoshop 3 then change the Application to the new version.
The only 2 formats that will save with layers in tack are PSD and tiff. To save out each layout you have to show/hide each layer and save them out individually. But I suspect that you want to do something as described HERE
search "plug" to find "P2_NEFPlugin_En.pdf" in the
NikonPictureProjectReferenceManual folder. You should have copied this
manual to your HD from your PictureProject CD when you installed
D40x NEF Photoshop Plugin -
file: "Nikon NEF Plugin LE.8bi"
Search Windows for "*.8bi"
These two plugins can be found at C:\Program Files\Nikon\PictureProject
Follow these instructions for (taken from the above reference manual)
**Note: before you uninstall PictureProject back up all of you NEF files.
"Installing the Nikon NEF Plug-in
Photoshop plug-ins are included with PictureProject: a Nikon NEF Plugin
LE plug-in for viewing RAW images, and a Nikon YCC TIFF plug-in for
viewing YCbCr-TIFF images (in Windows, these fi les have the extension
“*.8bi”). These plug-ins can be used with Adobe Photoshop Elements
version 2.0 or later and with Adobe Photoshop version 6.0 or later
(Windows) or 7.0 or later (Macintosh). Both plug-ins are copied to the
PictureProject application folder when PictureProject is installed (in
the Macintosh version, the plug-ins are copied
to the “File formats” folder in the PictureProject application folder).
If a copy of Photoshop is detected at installation, the plug-ins will
also be copied to the Photoshop plug-ins folder. Users who install
Photoshop after installing PictureProject should fi rst uninstall
PictureProject, and then reinstall PictureProject when installation of
Photoshop is complete."
After you open the RAW NEF picture file in Photoshop save it in lossless .psd format for further editing.
