Hello! I hope I'm not repeating a question here -- I looked through the relevant FAQ's and in the Choosing Programs memories and didn't see this question (answered in detail). What are the major differences between PS and PSE? What things won't I be able to do with Elements (as far as icon-making goes)? I'm a beginner who would like to start on the cheaper end, but I also don't want to eventually run into a wall with my program's capabilities. But I have no idea what the wall would look like or where it would fall, given my newness to graphics creation. Maybe someone could give me some examples of icons I could and couldn't do in Elements? I appreciate any help!
[I checked the memories and couldn't find any reference to this problem - apologies in advance if it's already been addressed and I missed it.]
I've just made a batch of icons, some of which are clocking in at over 40KB. I've never experienced this problem before, however many layers and effects I've used on my icons, and this particular bunch only uses layers of selective colouring. The only difference I can think of is that I cropped and resized them after colouring, rather than before, as I usually do - I don't know if that would make a difference. (They're all 100x100, I double checked.) Is there any way to reduce the size of the icons to below 40KB, preferably without degrading the quality? Many thanks!
ETA: Thanks, guys - changing the file type to .png has worked a treat!
