It is a good idea to keep a working copy of your painting in ptg format, because this format contains things like layers, paint thickness, paint wetness and so on, but ArtRage can export in standard formats such as jpg as well. You can find this option in the File menu 'Export as Image'. Just select the format you want from the list. You can find more information under 'Creating and saving paintings' in the ArtRage manual ( Help -> ArtRage Manual ). I hope that helps! Moving this to the Technical Support forum.
