Saving a Document

When you finish working on your Photoshop document, you need to save it before you close the document or exit Photoshop. While this may seem like a simple task, there are questions that must be asked before saving a file, like What is the final output of the image? For example, if the document is destined for the Internet, you'll probably save the document using the JPEG, GIF, or PNG formats. Each output device, whether monitor or paper, requires a specific format, and it's best to know this information at the beginning of the creation process. Knowing the final output of an image helps you create the design with the output in mind.
