Couldn't save as PNG in PE19

Couldlnt' save my .png file as a png file or mabye it did save it, but the asterisk was still there as if it hadn't been saved, so I Googled around and found this 'save as web' workaround but that of course changed the res to 72. (It was at 300.) Then I finally Xed out of the screen and when I did it asked me yet again if I wanted to save it. I did and it saved.

 

All I can think of is I converted and .eps to .svg in Zamzar converter. https://www.zamzar.com/ Maybe that did it?

 

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Most likely your png was saved, but since pngs don't support layers, photoshop elements saves it as a copy which doesn't support all image edits like layers, so you will still have the asterisk showing. If you were to flatten the png before saving or save the png as a psd then the asterisk will disappear.

Thanks Jeff. If the .png is flattened and I then enter it into a psd, the the png (its layer) will still be able to be manipulated (using the transform tool, reducing image size etc), right?

You don't need to flatten the png to save it as a psd.

 

But yes a flattened png can still be transformed, etc and also turned back into a regular layer by double clicking on the thumnail in the layers panel.

Thanks Jeff. And I tested it and the png didn't look saved (asterisk still there) but when I closed it and re-opened it it was.
