Pixie Quick Tip: Exporting Paintings as .JPEGs

When you save a painting in Pixie by going to "File" and "Save picture as", most users do not realize that the painting is being saved as a .pxi file (Pixie file). Therefore the picture you created will only open within Pixie software. (See picture below for what a Pixie file looks like.)

Instead, you will need to export your painting as a .JPEG, a picture file that will open in any application that takes pictures, such as Photo Story, Movie Maker, Microsoft Office, etc. To do this, click the "Export" button on the top toolbar and click 'Export'. Then click 'Export' again in the pop-up window so you can choose a folder and a drive to save it to. You're finished!
