Review answers

1Using the View menu, you can choose the Rulers and Grid commands to toggle them on and off. The Rulers appear on the left and upper sides of the image window. The grid is superimposed on the image. Neither of these elements is a permanent part of the image, and neither appears when you print the image or save it in another format, such as JPEG.
2You can customize grids and rulers using the Preferences dialog box (choose Edit > Preferences > Units And Rulers or Edit > Preferences > Grid). You can also choose View > Snap To Grid. When selected, this command makes items snap into alignment with the nearest grid lines when you move them with the Move tool.
3You must make a selection in the image window before the Delete key will erase the selected area on the selected layer. This is not necessary with the Background Eraser tool. The Delete key erases everything within the selected area, and does so completely. The Background Eraser tool deletes only the areas over which you drag. You can change the size and shape of the tool and its opacity, so that it erases only partially.
4Clipping path and grouped layers are synonyms in Photoshop Elements 3.0. The lower of the two grouped layers must have areas of transparency. The other layer must be directly above it and must be selected. Choose Layer > Group With Previous to create the clipping path. When this is done, the transparent areas of the lower layer also apply to the upper one. Effectively, the layer with the transparency serves as a cut-out form for the other layer—and that’s all it does.
5When you select a layer, an icon (usually a brush) fills the box as a reminder that the layer is active. When you click the empty box for a layer, it links the layer to the active layer. You can then move and transform the two layers as a unit without merging them.
