Exporting images to other file formats

Ydu can export Corel PHOTO-PAINT images to a variety of file formats. The file format you choose depends on how you want to use the image in the future. However, when you export an image to another file format, you may lose some image properties;

each file format has its own idiosyncrasies and appropriate use. For example, if you want to work on an image in another image editing application, you can export it to the Adobe Photoshop (PSD) file format. Ydu retain many image properties, such as objects and masks, so you can continue to edit the image. If you want to share an image, the Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) or the Windows bitmap (BMP) file format are suitable because they are standard formats; images in these formats can be opened in most image viewers and most image editing and desktop publishing applications.

Ydu can also export a file so that it is optimized for use with a suite of office productivity applications, such as Microsoft Office or WordPerfect Office.

For information about the image properties supported by file formats, consult the technical notes for each file format in "File formats" in the Help.
