Photoshop

Photoshop is Photoshop Elements’ native file format, meaning that the saved file will include information for any and all of Photoshop Elements’ features, including layers styles, effects, typography, and filters. As its name implies, any file saved in the Photoshop (PSD) format can be opened not only in Photoshop Elements, but also in Adobe Photoshop. Conversely, any Photoshop file saved in its native format can be opened in Photoshop Elements. However, Photoshop Elements doesn’t support all of the features available in Photoshop, so while you can open any file saved in the PSD format, some of Photoshop’s more advanced features (such as layer sets) won’t be accessible to you within Photoshop Elements.

A good approach is to save every photo you’re working on in the native Photoshop format and then, when you’ve finished, save a copy in whatever format is appropriate for that image’s intended use or destination. That way, you always have the original, full-featured image file to return to if you want to make changes or just save in a different format.
