Adobe Photoshop/Purchasing a photo


Hi Glen,

I am publishing an e-book and have found a stock photo to use as my cover. However, someone else (sister) will be doing the fonts, etc., as she has Photoshop on her computer. If I purchase the photo, will I be able to transfer it to her? Or will it be better if I give her the money, and she downloads it to her own computer?

Hi Carol,

Most stock images download as .jpg files. You can transfer it to your sister by burning a dvd or putting it on a flash drive, the file may be too big to email though. If there is any question, have your sister download it for the book cover and give you a copy if you want it to use later.

Hope this helps,

Adobe Photoshop
