Move the mouse over to "Format:" underneath our entered name
The default setting is "Photoshop (*.PSD; *.PDD)". This is a really good format when we are saving in Photoshop because when we have different layers, they will be saved within the document. The layers may be reflected at the right-hand side of the Photoshop window. We'll just open the file and see where we were before. PSD does not compress everything into one flat image.
We'll be shown other JPEG files as well, and "JPG" will be put at the end of the file name. JPEG flattens the image and compresses the file. We should only save as JPEG when we have finished editing the image. We have to ensure that we have the Photoshop files as well as a backup if we need to change anything, maybe the text layers, images, and so on.
We can keep the slider at "large file" just to ensure that we have the maximum quality. The default setting might be on "Medium". Depending on our preferences, we just move the scroller either by clicking or dragging.
TIFF is very similar to JPEG. Both can compress the image, but TIFF can generally make a higher quality image that is compressed, whereas JPEG ruins the quality, depending on with what we are working. "tif" will be put as extension of the file name. It is recommended to leave it as it is.
