I have a question about alphas...a few I've downloaded seem to come w/ 3 separate files: individual alphas, one the shows the whole set, and a printable file.
Being new to all this, it seems like the individual file(s) is all I would need. Can someone tell me why I'd need the others?

Presuming you're keeping ALL of your downloaded ZIP files, (and backing them up, too,) you could delete the large printable or full set images if you needed to save space. You can always re-unzip the originals to get them back. Hope that helps?

The individual .png files are great when you're only looking for 1 or 2 letters to use. I find the full .png sheet to be helpful when I'm using several alphas. I simply use the marquee tool to select the letters I need and use "Layer via Copy" to get each alpha on its own layer. The printable .jpg is great for hybrid projects--you can print them out and use them on whatever you're working on.
