14. File - Save As a second time

15. Click the Save As Type at the bottom of the Dialogue Box.

12. File - Save As - Browse to find the folder for this project.

13. Name the file 01_Cropped_Turtle.psd

PSD - PhotoShop Document. This is the type of file you use to save your working file. A
working file should never be given to clients unless they pay you for it. It is a valuable
file since it is the file that will allow you to further make changes to an image without
losing image quality. A psd file saves layers and most of the changes made to the image
can be easily changed again once you reopen the file. A PSD file cannot be used for the
web or in documents. Once you’re done editing and want to create a file to upload to a
website or to place into a document, you need to save a second file which can be saved in
a few file types. For now, we will save our image as a JPEG file which is always used to
save photographs and images.

14. File - Save As a second time

15. Click the Save As Type at the bottom of the Dialogue Box.

16. Name it Cropped_Turtle.jpg

17. Click the SAVE button on the bottom right.

18. Push the quality all the way to 12

This jpg file can now be delivered, uploaded to a website or placed in a document. The
final output of the finished product is called a deliverable. A deliverable is the final size
and format of the completed, edited file which can be delivered to a client. Most of the
time, the client will tell you the deliverable size and format. I did not give you a
deliverable size in this tutorial. Get in the habit of saving both types of files when a
project is complete.

You may now close this document. To close the document, look for the little gray tab at
the top of the image. There should be a light X in the right of the tab. Don’t click on the
X in the upper right of the program. That will shut the entire program down. You can also
click on File - Close. Closing files that you are not using becomes important once you
start working on very large documents. So, keep the program screen as clear as possible
by keeping only the necessary files open at one time.

Move on to the next tutorial.

INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE IMAGE

height).

You may now close all documents that are open.
