If you haven’t done so already, make sure you save your work by clicking on File > Save As…. Type in the name of your work and press OK. This will create a file with a cpg file which is associated with Manga Studio, a thumbnail image of your work, a layer folder and a pff file. Save a lot and save frequently! If you want to be extra careful, you can make a backup of your work whether it’s via a Flash drive, CD or online.
Print out your work to see how it looks but before your hit the Print button, check out the Print Setup which will bring up this window with lots of printing options.
Select what you want to show up or not show up and hit Print at the bottom to send it to your printer. Hit OK if you would like to keep those settings for future print jobs.
Luckily, there is a preview of how it will look like on the screen so use it to your advantage.
If you click on File > Export, you will get two options. You can either export by size or by pixels. Either one will bring you the same results so choose one that makes more sense to you.
Check off and adjust what you want the exported file to be then hit OK to start the conversion. When it’s done, a bmp file will appear at the location you specified with the specs you choose.
Note: If you resize your image after the conversion, the resulting image may not be as clean as the original particularly if you used tones.
Now you know all there is to making your own manga through Manga Studio. Go create something and most of all—have fun with it!
The finished image (tones have moire due to resizing):
