The Save Image Pyramid option currently is not supported by most other programs, so I recommend leaving it unchecked unless you're told otherwise by your output service provider.

If you choose to save your TIFF with layers intact, specify the type of compression to use for those layers at the bottom of the TIFF Options dialog box. If you made a mistake and forgot to choose Save A Copy in the previous window, now's your chance: choose Discard Layers And Save A Copy before clicking OK.

TRY IT To save your image as an EPS, select File I Save As or press SHIFT-CTRL-S (Windows)/ SHIFT-CMD-S (Mac). Name your file and select Photoshop EPS from the Format pop-up menu. If your file contains Layers, Annotations, Alpha Channels, or Spot Colors, Photoshop automatically warns you that the file must be saved as a copy, because the EPS file format doesn't support any of these features. To embed a color profile, select the appropriate option next to Color before clicking Save to continue and adjust the following EPS options.

• In the Preview box, select the type of low-resolution image you'd like to use when the file is displayed in page-layout programs that only support low-resolution previews. For cross-platform use, always choose one of the TIFF options—the 8-bit option creates better previews but larger file sizes.

• In the Encoding box, select the way in which the file's data should be transferred to the printer. Although the Binary option typically creates a smaller file size and doesn't edit the original data, it is not supported by all printers. Generally, the ASCII option is recommended for Windows users, while Binary is more commonly used by Mac users. Note that if you use the Binary option and encounter any printing problems, you should switch to ASCII.

• The options for Include Halftone Screen and Include Transfer Function are best left unchecked unless your printer specifies otherwise. To use Adobe's color-management features on the file, check PostScript Color Management. However, if you plan to also use color-management features in the destination file, leave this box unchecked, because the two color-management options could work against each other.

• To keep shapes and type as vectors, select Include Vector Data. Remember this type of content will only be read by other programs supporting vector data, such as Adobe Illustrator.

• Select Image Interpolation to anti-alias the edges of the low-resolution image.
