Ben's Techno-Babble Decoder Ring

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

Opacity: A setting that 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.
