The Ã¢â‚¬Å“videosÃ¢â‚¬? are actually pictures. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll explain later on
First your main file types.
YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll mostly deal with these 3 types
.jpg (jpeg picture. Compressed down so good for e-mailing. Is a smaller file then others)
.bmp (bitmap-basically a regular sized image)
.pdf (photo shop document- saves projects)
Some others that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find helpful
.png (ping file. Comprssion level not as much as jpg. Try using this if the jpg distorts your image a little)
.gif (gif file Ã¢â‚¬â€œgraphics interchangeable format. This is the most easily read format. Is used in older model cell phones for pictures as well as the animations you see in the avatars and sigs I made)
You have to realize what your working with.
Is it a single layer picture or multi layer. Only the gif and PDF and handle the multi-layers. PDF is a useless file. Only use it when your saving something your working on. After that save it appropriately.
Back to animations. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actually a picture that has several layers. What it is doing is a slide show of the layers. To do that you would have to create a slide show on the same picture just different layers then save as a gif animation file.
Cropping pictures is simple. Just select what you want to keep and select crop layer or image of you can select the crop tool and it will let u adjust what you wanna keep. I hope this gives u a basic idea of what your looking for. If u have nay more questions feel free to ask
