saving image with overlay

Sein
Hi, I'm rather new using imagej and still getting the grip of it, but I can't find a way to save my image with the overlay. I have made my ROI and got all the data I need and I know if I save it as TIFF the overlay saves with it and you can load it again, but what I want is a normal image to use it as a graphic guide, or in some presentation. I don't want to be able to edit the ROIs, I just want an image with the overlay in jpg or similiar to use it in some presentations and webs. Is it possible to do it?
Thanxx

Hi Sein,

you can use Image>Overlay>Flatten

This creates a copy of the image with the overlay drawn on it (thereby
destroying the original image data where the overlay is shown). It also
converts 16-bit and floating-point (=32-bit) images to standard RGB with
3*8 bits (i.e. 8 bits for each color channel).
Then save it as png, jpg or whatever you like.
