Ok, I've litterally spent 1+ hours on a drawing, and now I need to save it because I want to show you guys. To the artists that use SAI, what file type should I use to show you guys? I don't want to choose the wrong one and have to completely restart.

*EDIT* It also has 10 layers, don't know how this might change anything but I'll put it in anyways.

if dont have background(transparent) use PNG
if have background, use JPEG(will turn the file more ''light'')
i think in SAI(like PS) will show a msg asking if you want to ''join'' the layers, choose yes(but dont forget to have a file with the layers if you want to use later)
i host my imgs in imgur(or you can use deviantart if you have one) the problem with imgur is, if your file is png, sometimes imgur add a plain background(usually white)

Generally go for JPEG or PNG. PNG tends to have higher quality but is a larger file, and JPEGS are a little lower in quality but are smaller, so I tend to use JPEGS when posting stuff on the forums so they load better.

All right, I'll use JPEG. Thank you both!
