Why is export 'persona' so confusing?

3 posts in this topic

All I want to do is export my entire image from Photo as a PDF to send to a co-worker. Why is this so difficult to do?

 

I go to the export persona, and the export options on the top right don't actually seem to lead to anything as there is no way to actually use these settings to export the image (a button that says 'Export' would have made to much sense I guess...). Below is the layers/slices panel, and I can export the entire thing as a slice but it doesn't give me the option to use PDF despite the fact that I have it selected in the upper section. What magical incantation must be performed to export an entire document as a PDF?

File->Export will also allow you to export an image as a PDF. I think that the Export Persona is intended for more complex tasks.

Hi tecz, 

Welcome to the forum. :) 

The Persona gives focus to the task at hand, exporting and the choice of parameters can be accessed in either mode – see screenshots attached.

I hope this helps, 

Cheers,
