The video is good but when I go to my design page to do the same it does not look the same - I do not know why. Also I do not know which format is the best to add to an e-mail.

Hey Greta, the two main formats you need are JPEG and PNG. PNG is uncompressed (higher quality) and supports transparency, so it's good for graphics/illustrations or anywhere where absolutely top quality is important. JPEG is good for photos or anywhere you need to have smaller files at the expense of a potential (but not necessarily visually noticeable) drop in quality. The other formats (GIF and SVG) are quite specialized and you'd probably know if you needed to use them. So if you're not sure, pick between PNG (higher quality/large size) or JPEG (potentially but not always lower quality/smaller size). If your images have transparent areas, then you should always go for PNG.

Hi, when exporting I like to keep control of my dimensions. Photoshop allows me to export an image to exactly 1200 or 800 or whatever dimensions I choose for web. I don’t see that option in Pixelmator, correct? So when I have a 5.000 px large image, I won’t be able to quickly export it to less than 2.500 px (@50%) unless I change the dimensions of the original image. Is that right?

That's right, for now, that's the way things work. We're aware of this, though, and we'll see if we can make some improvements in the future.

I'd like to se that added too... I really want my 6000px wide logo to export at 25%, but I cannot find a way to add that preset... weird. It'd be REALLY convenient if that'd be added soon! Thanks in advance!
