Saving what? File type who?
File types from Photoshop:
First look at – File > Save as…
- Photoshop – this file is a PSD. and is a basic Photoshop document type.
- JPEG – are really versatile, but they are a lossy file type (means that every time you open and save it, it re-compresses and loses some quality).
- Photoshop PDF – it’s effectively a PDF. Photoshop does support vector text, assuming you’ve left your text as editable text.
- Tiff – they maintain quality, huge amount of file size is workable. They hold layer information, spot colour information and more-or-less any information you save. They even interact with other software.
Export for web and devices:
This is the other way of saving from Photoshop. Using File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy) we can save files that are optimised for web. From here we can choose JPEG’s, PNG’s, and GIF’s. These files will be optimised to be much smaller file size for web use.
