<Tips: Formats for Saving Files>

CLIP STUDIO FORMAT (extension: clip).

The data of the currently open canvas is saved, with all layer information kept. Images created in CLIP STUDIO PAINT are saved in CLIP STUDIO FORMAT (extension: .clip).


Adobe Photoshop Document Format (Extension: psd) and Adobe Photoshop Big Document Format (Extension: psb)

The layers are not combined when saving using [Save as] or [Save Duplicate]. When saving using [Export], all layers are combined as a single layer. All layer information unique to CLIP STUDIO PAINT, such as [Toning] and [Special ruler], is discarded when saving.

Printing[Windows/macOS]

To print toned manga or illustrations in monochrome, select the [File] menu → [Print Settings] and then select [Duotone (Threshold)] for [Expression color] in the [Print Settings] dialog box.

Configure the same settings from the [File] menu → [Export (Single Layer)] even if exporting in a general image format such as BMP.


<Tips: Types of Duotone>

When [Mask expression] → [Posterization] is set to [Yes] in [Tone] as an effect on the [Layer Property] palette, the mask can be blurred with gray posterization, but this effect cannot be printed in duotone. When printing in duotone, the result differs depending on whether [Duotone (Threshold)] or [Duotone (Toning)] is selected as the [Expression color] in the [Print Settings] dialog box.


Duotone (Threshold)

Dark areas are printed in black and light areas are printed in white, with brightness 50% as the threshold.

Duotone (Toning)

Posterization of opaque areas is toned according to the [Screen frequency] on the canvas.


[Memo]

On iPad, the printing function cannot be used.
