I'm assuming that you have the picture the way you would like it. Now you need to save it.

Click file - save

You will want to give it a new name so that you don't over write your original. What I do sometimes is leave the name the same then add the size to it so it would be something like "my_pic_300x225.jpg"

This is also the area you decide what format you want to save as. Most people use JPG.

You can also pick where to save to.

Once you have all that info in the pop up window the way you want click "save" and you have it done.

Remember drawings/diagrams should be able to be saved as GIF which will give a smaller size file saving you space. This is a good time to remember that if you are doing a webpage and want to use thumbnails you can take this pic you just reduced and saved and now do the above resize/resample steps but this time have the width small say '100' the height will automatically adjust now save this with a name like 'my_pic_th.jpg'. Yes this will mean uploading to graphic files, however, your page will load faster as the thumbnail size is small and only those that want to see the larger size will have to wait for the larger size to come up.

Would you like to add text to your picture?

Okay, place the curser in the top edge of where you want the text to be. Push in the left mouse button and hold in you should have a crosshair curser now. Continue to hold in the left button and drag the curser to the right and down a little. You should have a box outlined there. (diagram D)

Now click edit add Text... now you have another pop up window. (diagram E)

As you see there is a button to choose font, if you click that you can change it to what you want. Type the message into the white area of this pop up then click okay and the text will be in the box you had outlined and the outline will be gone. (diagram F)
