You can convert your photos to either JPEG or TIFF images and in various sizes suitable for different purposes.
- An image format that uses “lossy” compression to achieve small file size. It’s often used to send photos by e-mail or display photos on the web.
- An image format that can use “lossless” compression; however, file sizes are usually quite large. Despite that, this is usually the best format to use for import into other applications.
To convert your photo:
- Select File > Convert…
- Optionally enter a new name for the converted image.
- Select a destination folder for the converted image.
- Select the type of image to convert to: JPEG or TIFF.
- Select the color profile to include.
- Select the rendering intent.
- Optionally, check Black point compensation (applies only when the rendering intent is Relative Colorimetric).
- Optionally, enter a width and height in pixels in the Resize To text fields to scale down your photo.
- Optionally, enter a different resolution and select a unit.
- Set the quality (for JPEG) or bit depth (for TIFF).
- Select whether to use LZW compression (TIFF only).
- Click Convert.
