The only difference between doing a Save and a Save As is when you do a
Save you save the file in the current (or default for that program) file
format. If it's the 1st save you can name the file otherwise it's saved
with the current file name. If you have or have not previously saved
the file when you do a Save As you can change the file name and/or
select a different file format. Save As has nothing to do with
flattening the file (that's done within the program you're currently
using) *unless* you choose a file format that doesn't support layers
then the file will be flattened because of the file format you chose
(e.g., you're working in Photoshop and you do a Save As and select JPG,
then the file will be flattened but only the Save As version, the
current file will still have any existing layers).
