It may seem like a minor task, saving your image, but you have to make many decisions at this stage. Where will the image be viewed, onscreen or print? Will the image be large, or will it be the size of your thumbnail? Without selecting the correct settings and format, you may not be able to import your file or place it into other applications. If you save the file in the wrong format, you could delete valuable components, such as layers or saved selections.
