Join David Lee for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving files for use in other applications, part of SketchBook Pro 2010 Essential Training.
In the lesson, I will show how to save your drawing file in SketchBook Pro.…There are several file formats and I'd like to share those with you.…Let's go ahead and move our cursor to the top of the main menu to File and here…you'll see four different options.…We've Save, Save As, Save a Copy As, and Add Image.…The first one, Save, allows you to save it as native TIFF format, allowing you to…preserve all of your drawing layers.…Save As allows you to not only save it as a TIFF file but many other options as well.…Save a Copy As allows you to save a duplicate file. However, you can rename it.…
Add Image allows you to import an existing image and drop it in to your…SketchBook Pro file.…Since Save As allows you to have other options to save it in, let's go ahead and…click on Save As and you can save it as a different file name, highlighting it…and reentering it in your keyboard, and then as you click on Save as type, click…on that, you can see the many options you have.…You have TIFF, Bitmap, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and Adobe Photoshop.…

Q: The grid files the author uses in the course aren't included in the exercise files. Where can I find them?
A: The grid files are background template files that are provided with an Autodesk subscription, which comes with purchase of any Autodesk product, including Sketchbook Pro.
