What is the process for transferring images that were created in Photoshop (or Illustrator) for Macs to the same product in windows 95?  Is it as easy as saving it as a GIF, JPEG, etc.. and opening it on the windows machine?  
Thanks

Absolutely. The thing to do is this: format a disk for PC on your Mac. Then save the file as a portable format (.gif or .jpg or even .eps or .bmp) and open it on your PC.

Voila!

Sorry, one more thing. You MUST include the extension in the file name, i.e. filename.gif or filename.jpg.  It's also a good idea to keep the file name to an 8.3 format.

Thanks - that was what I thought, but I wanted confirmation.  I did not know the part about including the file extension. that was probably the problem.
