Changing file formats

In addition to using the Save As command to duplicate an existing file, this is a handy way of changing one format into another. For example, you can open an image you created in a digital camera, then make modifications in the Photoshop format. To do this, open the .jpg file in Photoshop, click File on the menu bar, then click Save As. Name the file, click the Format list arrow, click Photoshop (*.PSD, *.PDD), then click OK.
