Saving Images

You can save changes you make to an image or page in the same file you opened, or to a new file. Saving to a new file enables you to save to a different format or name.

To Save an Edited Image in the Same File

  1. Choose Save from the File menu.

    The Save dialog box appears.

  2. Click OK.

    A dialog box is displayed, asking you if you want to overwrite the existing file.

  3. Click Overwrite Existing File to save the changes in the existing file.

    Click Cancel if you do not want to overwrite the existing file. Change the file name or change folders in the Save dialog box to save the changes to a new file.

To Save an Image as a New File

To save a file and specify its format, folder, and name:

  1. Choose Save As from the File menu.

  2. Double-click a folder name in the Folder list to open it.

  3. Type the name of the file in the Enter file name field.

  4. Select the file format in which you want your file written.

    For a list of the formats, see "Image Viewer File Formats".

  5. Choose a compression method from the Compression menu button.

    The default is None (no compression); compressed files require less disk space.

  6. Choose the number of colors to save for your file from the Colors menu button.

    The choices depend on the type of monitor you have.

  7. Click OK.

    Image Viewer saves your file in the specified format.
