How to convert PSD to JPG

Changing file formats from Photoshop document to JPG.

PSDs (Photoshop documents) are layered image files that are ideal for working in Photoshop. This image format allows you to work on multiple layers at the same time and retain information so you can transfer and pick up that work on any device. PSDs can also be used in other Adobe systems like Adobe InDesign. When you go to share your work online, you’ll want to convert your PSD images to a smaller file size in the JPG format, the file compression most often used for digital images..
