Saving a modified image

An image modified in the image editor can be saved via the Save icon found in the ribbon.
Several cases may occur:
  • If the image contains no layer (simple image directly modified or flattened image), the image is automatically saved in its initial format with the same name. Therefore, the existing image is directly modified (and updated in your windows, reports, ... that use this image).
  • If the image contains at least one layer, the image can be saved in different formats:
    Backup window
    • Image in PNG format only. The layers will be lost.
    • Image in PNG and WDPICT format. The name of the image file in WDPICT format has the following format: initialimagename.initialextension.wdpict. The image in WDPICT format contains the description of all layers and the description of all modifications performed on the initial image. The initial image is not modified. When loading an image in the image editor, if this image has an equivalent in WDPICT format, the .wdpict file is automatically loaded in the image editor.
    • Image in WDPICT format only.
      In this case, the initial image is not modified.
