Lesson Info

Saving the Layered Image

One last little step file save well, remember, I started with the raw capture and so I can't save this image back is overall capture. I have to save it is something else. So even though I chose saved it's going to give me the save as dialog, I'll choose either photo shop or tiff so that I can actually preserve all of my layers and then make sure that the layers checkbox is turned on all in bed. The color profile, whatever I happen to be using, give it a name, give a different location if I need and then I'll click save and then I get the question about maximize compatibility. This is an option in preferences for photo shop in terms of whether or not you want to maximize compatibility. If you're importing in delight room, you must have this option turned on. So I will go ahead and say that. And now all of my layers are saved in that photo shop psd files. So when I close it and reopen it, all of this will be right here, so I go back and find tune review, et cetera.
