    And even then, if you do switch over to PS, you can save the files to .tiff yourself to reduce the size of the files.

    I used to only save .psd because if the .tiff file is saved correctly to reduce size, PSPx2 wont show the layers and I couldn't scrap with the template. But since I've started to exclusively use PS, I've been saving the .tiff files just because it reduces the size on my harddrive and I can see the file image without having to click on it.

    But really its a personal preference thing. Do what is right for you now and as you grow, you adjust and change then.

    I keep the Tiff's. other than the size is smaller, I like the fact that I can actually see the thumbnail preview.

    I use psd files and delete the tif and png files since I don't use them. I also only occasionally buy templates because once I use a template, I delete the original; my preference because it keeps me from using the same page design over and I have a ton of templates so it frees up space for more! For templates I buy, I keep them and date the folder so I do't use them again in the same year.

    I've also been told my scrapbook stuff is scary-organized; something I could NEVER achieve with my paper supplies!

    I also only use psd for templates and will immediately delete all the other formats.
