look in the render globals, change the image format in there.

windows > rendering editors > Render Globals > image format

no matter what format it's rendered as, in the Render View, you can File > Save As any format you want, including .jpg.

Under the File menu, when you save it, you can change the format in the saving dialog box.

I agree with pony save as TARGA, BMP or TIF, then open in photoshop and save as jpeg. The end result is much better.
