    Hi Sheila ; When you click save ...save as a .psd file.

    Thanks Craig but saviing as a PSD file limits the applications I can insert
    the image to - I want to save as a JPG or GIF for web design

    if you are NOT doing stuff for the web...i like png files. transparancy is
    automatic...and the itegretity of the file is pretty high. However....png's
    aint very browser friendly...but they are great for say powerpoint and print
    work

    just my thoughts
