« How do you print the grid? | Main | Banding in Gradients »



You actually dont have to do any of that! Simple right click on the background layer select "Layer from Background" then OK. TADAAAAAAAA :)


i was in my facebook profile loooking at friend and i click on block image by misstake i want to no how to anlock it please help me


You just double click on the background layer and rename it, there's no need to "Click on IMAGE go to MODE"


This worked for me--

Click Image > Mode > RGB Color

If that is not the problem, try clicking on Layer > New > Layer From Background

Hope this helps!

I had an enormous amount of trouble with this. None of the forums seemed to answer the question pertaining to my particular situation.

I had dragged a locked layer into another document. It *really* wanted to stay locked.
The solution for me was to convert the layer to a smart object and then rasterize it.

I you enter the above web site you will see a yellow background. I used to get it on my computer but by mistake I must have selected this in error how do I corrrect it?


Every time i open a photo it is locked. i know how to unlock files. but i want to make it so the files i open don't lock automatically.
if you know how to fix this than please tell me how.


sorry i didn't realise i posted it three times lol, sorry about that.
