Chapter 5. Saving and Sharing Files


The best thing about working with digital images is that you can preserve all the detail of an image as a file, and copy or back that file up as many times as you like. The quality of the digital image won’t degenerate as the file is opened, copied, or closed, or while it is just biding its time on your computer’s hard drive.
