Summary: There are several different file formats to choose from when you save the photos, but as long as you are working in Photoshop, you should save in the Photoshop format – psd.

For space reasons, a photo have to be packed together. The gasket is usually done in Jpeg of various grades. Basic is: the smaller the file – the worse the photo.

File formats are different models to save your image
When you save a photo, or for that matter any computer file at any time, there is a plethora of different formats to choose from.

The reasons for this are many. First, you must have the program will come to a proprietary format. There, the program can save all their special pieces. The photo in itself of course, but also settings etc hanging with.

This makes it easy when you have a workflow that includes multiple programs. Therefore, there are a number of standards in the form of file formats that any application can understand.

JPEG is a file format packs, known as compressed, to save space on the media or in the transmission.

Are you up to a workflow that only includes Adobe products: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, GoLive, etc. as .psd will do good to the oxå.


TIFF is actually the photo right up and down. No krussiduller, just the photo. All programs can be read both on Macintosh and Windows.

EPS is basically the same as TIFF, though ready for printing. Today, there is seldom any reason for you to save in EPS. But it is not impossible that you get such a file by anyone else. Just load it into Photoshop.

RAW is sometimes called digital negatives. Once the image is captured in a digital camera is the so-called RAW format. Just as light is let in.
