Ben's Techno-Babble Decoder Ring

Lock Transparency— A function in Photoshop that temporarily “freezes” the transparency of a layer. While Lock Transparency is in effect, you cannot increase or decrease how transparent an area will appear.

Opacity— The Opacity setting determines how opaque (the opposite of transparent) the information on a layer will appear. An Opacity setting of 100% will not allow you to see the underlying image. A setting below 100% will allow the underlying image to partially show through the current layer.
