How do I save a wordpress theme created using a theme framework?

Wordpress for a noob who isn't a noob developer: Can you explain the basics of using a framework theme to create a new theme? I totally understand the concept but can't figure out how to save changes I make as a new theme.

I've been designing sites using the MovableType backend since 2003 (gasp!) but I'm switching to Wordpress and have the perfect project for a trial run.
Working with a framework theme seems to make sense for a first project. Canvas, by Woothemes, seems like a particularly easy way to get my wordpress feet wet... and since they're having a sale this weekend, I can pick it up at a nice discount. SWEET! I know there are free frameworks like themehybrid and thematic, and perhaps I'll try one of those in a future project).
...Here's where I'm lost:
Let's say I buy the Canvas theme/framework.
I'd design a site in photoshop, slice up the parts, upload them, and then alter Canvas within wordpress to fit the site I've designed [/oversimplification].
OK! Got it.
This seems like it'll have a really simple answer, but my google-fu has led me into maze after maze.
Any and all advice welcome!!!!!!!!!
