Hey, what's up? My name is Chase, and I'm going to be teaching you how to save your resume as a JPEG, today. Normally, you can already have your resume saved as a PDF through Microsoft Word, or whatever program you use. So, we're going to open that PDF into Photoshop by going to File, Open. We're going to find where we saved our resume, I saved mine on the Desktop, so I'm going to click on that. When it loads, the dialog box is going to come up, and you can change the size of the document, you can change the resolution. At this point, I'm going to keep everything the same and hit O.K. Once that loads, there's going to be a transparent background, that we're going to need to get rid off. How we're going to do that, is by clicking Layer, down to the very bottom and hit Flatten Image. That's going to give a white background to our document and make it invisible to whoever is viewing it. Now, we're going to save it as a JPEG by going to File, Save As. Choose the destination to which you would like to save it, I'm going to save it to the Desktop. And then, under Format, click the menu and select JPEG. If you'd like to save it as a copy, you can, it's just going to save it as a duplicate. So, that way, you're not overwriting what you have done before. I choose not to do that, it just takes up space on your Desktop or in your hard drive. I'm going to embed my color profile, which is just something that's setup automatically in Photoshop, that you've already selected. And I'm going to hit Save. I always maximize the quality to 12, which increases the document size a little bit, but it's not that much. And I always choose a format of Baseline (Standard), and I hit O.K. And that's it, that's how you save your resume as a JPEG in Photoshop.
