    Hi – this was actually really helpful. I’ve been saving as JPG and wondering why the text is jagged…works much better saved as PNG even though I don’t need the transparency.

    I am relatively new at PSE and have found saving files confusing at best. This has been an excellent review of Saving. It is a vital area for working in PS. I am late learning this. I should have gotten into this earlier and saved a lot of guesswork and grief.

    I downloaded Save the Day,, but was not successful. Message read that the file was corrupted.
    I think I went through this before with the magazine, and with your assistance it worked out fine.
    I have no idea why it won’t save, now.

    quite alot to learn. I was trying to design a poster to cover my glass window measuring 3980mm by 2360mm but was not able to set the size. Still trying to figure out. Any tips on this?

    As a 72 year old grandmother I look forward to learning something new. I used PSE 2 several year’s ago and now have more time to devote to doing fun things with my photo’s. Looking forward to my first issue.
