Right click properties & try changing it to be viewed under another program or try changing the file extension to jpg

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

You are not saving it as a jpg, you are saving it as an xmp file. When saving, you need to select the drop down box that lets you choose the format and select jpg.

Here is some info on the xmp format

Your photo is saved as a jpg (or pdf), not as a xmp. The xmp file is simply a text file that lists the processes, etc., that you applied to your RAW image file. If you look further, you'll find your iimage files somewhere in the same folder.

Alphawave, could you explain a little further? If it saved as a jpg then how can it be a raw image file?

It was most likely a RAW file to begin with. You can save a raw file to any other format you wish. Unless you deleted the original, you should have three files for that image; the original raw file, the xmp file and the jpg file that you saved. Again, the xmp is a text file (you can read it with a text editor) that tells Photoshop what processes, editing, etc., that you applied to the raw version. Not sure, but PS may create an xmp file even if you don't do any editing, etc. Bottom line: if you saved the image as a jpg file, it has to be around there somewhere.
