My TIFF changed to PSD somewhere along the way - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I was working in a TIFF file. At some point, I went to save it and the Save was greyed out. I wasn't sure why, so I did a save as. Now I have a psd file. What is it and can I or should I convert it back to TIFF....

    You must have used a feature only available in the PSD format. What
    version of Photoshop are you using?

    Save was grayed out because no changes were made - simple as that.

    All you have to do is Save As again and in the dialog box, look at the format you're choosing, right under the file name. Choose Tiff, and save.

    The quickest way this happens is if you create layers. Photoshop will automatcially convert the file type to "psd". If you combine or "flatten" the layers, you can then resave as a TIFF file.

    Some ways Photoshop will create layers without you selecting them is by using type or when copying and pasting. There may be others but these are the ones I ran into.
