How to Save Images

Well, if the changes you make were not saved to the original file, their only saved is taxed. How can I now give this file to someone else and so they can see the changes? Well, either open it all the way into photo shop and choose save. Choose the file format you want, or in the lower left is a button called Save Image. And therefore, you wouldn't even need open and Photoshopped. It could be done right here where you would be able to save out of jpeg file, that kind of thing when you click it. It looks complicated, but it actually isn't. All it is is up here. Says destination. Where do you want the file to go? And you could select a folder. You can totally ignore this because that's only if he wanted to rename the file. And then right here is the file format. You want JPEG for pictures? Yeah, and then the quality. Um, but most of the other settings there are not critical. So I'm gonna hit, done, and therefore those settings will be saved to my files. Now, when I had just an image in a...

musing bridge here, accessing camera raw you're gonna find after you adjust a picture that there's gonna be an icon in the upper right right there in that indicates that that image has camera raw settings attached to it as metadata. Meaning is text, and it will not change the original file if it's a raw file, if it's a J peg or a tiff, it will change the original. But Onley by adding text in some of the data, Um, but when it comes to a raw file, it's a proprietary file format that Photoshopped doesn't want to mess up in. So what it does is if you're raw file and you see that icon in the upper right, there's actually going to be more than one file in the folder where the file is stored. I actually don't have that here, though. Let me see. I think I have it in one of my previous, Um, I think you just a moment to locate a true raw file, meaning one that came from a digital camera right? There is one. You notice that it has that icon, which means it's been adjusted. What came a wrong if I were to actually look on my hard drive. There's a choice called Reveal in Finder that will let me see it. You're gonna find that that file contains something bonus in there. Here's the file itself. It's the file that ends with the letter C R. Two. That's a raw file out of a cannon camera. But then below that is another file that has the exact same file name, except for it ends with letters. Ex MP. That's where the camera raw settings aren't that were applied to the picture when I say they're saved. Is metadata there saved right in that file. In it is 25 kilobytes in size, which is absolutely tiny. The reason I bring that up is if you work with raw files, you're gonna have those extra files in there. Don't throw him away. And if you ever move this file, move that with it. Otherwise, if you move just this, you're not moving the camera. Raw adjustments. If I take that file and I throw it in the trash can where I just move it up to a different folder here, I'll put it on my desktop. Do you see that image instantly? Right here changed in appearance. That's what it looked like before I applied camera. I'll put it back in the same folders, the picture, and it took it a second. But Bridge found that file and applied the settings. So if you ever see ex MP files, keep them with whatever files they relate to, they'll have the exact same file name except for the very, very end of the file. And so I try to get as much out of my images in camera as I possibly can.

I am an avid reader of photoshop books, and an avid watcher of photoshop tutorials. I have attended (internet) several hundred of presentations. In the course of this endeavor, I have found my own favorite photoshop websites and instructors. Creative Live is probably the bargain out there as well as among the top three internet course sites. I have to say with great enthusiasm that the best Photoshop instructor is Ben Willmore. There are many great ones, but truly, he is the best I have come across, and, as indicated above, I have watched literally 100s of tutorials on Photoshop. I have seen all of Ben's courses, I think, and among them, this one is the best by far, and that is saying a lot, because that makes this course the best course on Photoshop to be found anywhere. I am going back and watching it twice. Not only is it comprehensive, but Ben is so familiar with his subject that he is able to explain it like no other. This is crème de la crème of Photoshop classes. I have been wanting to write this review for some time because I have been so thoroughly impressed with everything about this class!

Wow. I cannot communicate the value of this course!! The true value in this course is how the instructor identifies workflows you'll need before you'll ever realize it, repeats important information without it becoming annoying, and explains the "why" behind the techniques so well that even if you forget the exact method, you can figure it out via the principles learned. Excellent value, excellent material, excellent instructor!!!


The short lessons makes it easy to find things. Clear explanations, structured content, great examples, handbook plus practice images - this class is worth x10 the price! I have seen many of Ben's classes and I'm so happy you created this one, love it
