Save a File

Thank you for joining me today for the last Ultimate Basics tutorial in Adobe Photoshop Elements.  Today we will learn how to save our scrapbook page.

Here is my final layout, and I would like to save it as a jpeg:

Go up to File (upper left corner of the Menu bar), > Save As and a dialogue box will open.

Click on the down pointing arrow in the “Save As:” box and navigate to the file where you would like to save your layout.  You can see that I have chosen to save my layout in my PSE-Tutorial folder.  Specify a File name, and then choose the JPEG format. Click Save, and you’re done.  Your layout will now be in the folder that you specified.

Very often, in addition to saving my layout as a JPEG, I will also save it as a PSD or TIFF file.  These file formats save the layers, rather than flattening them.  If I realize I have made a mistake, want to change something, or learn a new technique I would like to try out on this layout,  I can just open the layered file and start working, rather than having to start all over again.  Amanda (Nibbles Scribbles) has a great tutorial on the difference between PSD and TIFF files and I encourage you to take a peek at it!

Photoshop Elements is a great program, with many capabilities!  This week we have just covered the Ultimate Basics!  Be watching for more tutorials on our blog.  You may also click on the Help button in the Elements Menu bar to read more about how Elements can help you reach your creative potential!

I have a small gift for you which you may download HERE.   A Sneak Peak at my new kit Balancing Act, which will be coming very soon!  It contains 3 papers and 5 elements for you to practice with!

Thanks for joining me this week! See you again soon!
