- Here's the file we made,…where were customizing layer effects.…Let's look at how we might Export this.…If we choose the JPG format,…then we can save this whatever size we want.…The trouble is that JPG is a flattened format.…It doesn't support transparency.…And if we wanted to export this for web use,…then we're stuck with that white background.…Instead, we might choose the PNG format.…
That stands for Portable Network Graphics.…This produces rather larger files,…but the advantage…is that it gets rid of all that white background.…At the moment, nothing is selected,…so it's going to Save…the whole document with the background.…Let's cancel that,…and select both of these layers.…Now, when we choose to Export,…we can tell Affinity Photo not to Export the whole document,…but to Export the Selection without background.…
That's still very big, at 872 kB,…but then, we made this file at a very large size.…If we take this back down to our, say, 800 pixels,…that brings that down to 134 kB, or thereabouts.…It's still quite large, but it will be best quality.…
