OKay I maybe jumping at this a little early considering I just am into Chapter 3 of Dan Ablans Inside lightwave 7 but how do I save a pic of the final render?Also what format for uploading to pages?Just curious because aren't most of the images uploaded JPEGS?

either go to 'Render Options' and set a filepath to save a file, or render with 'F9' then in the image viewer window go to 'file' and choose the file type. Jpg's are used on webpages, but it's better to save as .PSD then export the jpg from Photoshop, and compress it (like 50%) a bit more than LW will. Jpg's out of LW are about 10 times bigger than they need to be for webpages.
