Lesson 3. Layer Basics > Flattening and saving files

Flattening and saving files

When you have edited all the layers in your image, you can make a copy of the file with the layers flattened. Flattening a file's layers merges them into a single background, greatly reducing the file size. However, you shouldn't flatten an image until you are certain you're satisfied with all your design decisions. In most cases, you should retain a copy of the file with its layers intact, in case you later need to edit a layer.

To save a flattened version of the file, you will use the Flatten Image command.
