Working with Different File Formats

Photoshop Album can handle a variety of file formats for graphics, sound, and video. A file format is the way a file's data is represented and saved. It is a specific way of structuring the information into bytes.

All digital data is stored through a series of 0s and 1s, each known as a bit. And 8 bits create a unit of storage called a byte.

No need to worry about the technical jargon. Just know that each format has its strengths and weaknesses, and some are better at certain tasks than others.
