1Because the text remains separate from the image, Photoshop Elements text layers can be edited in later work sessions, just like most other kinds of text documents.
2The toolbox is the collection of tool icons. In the standard work area arrangement, it appears as a single column of icons along the left edge of the work area. The tool options bar appears across the top of the work area, just below the menus and shortcuts bar. The tool options bar shows the various settings you can select for the active tool. For example, when you select the Type tool, the tool options bar displays options for the fonts, text color, and so forth. When you select a different tool, the settings for that tool replace the text tool options in the tool options bar.
3A palette is a floating window containing controls for functions that are not tied to a particular tool. For example, the Layers palette shows you the layer structure in the file and provides various options you can select to control how the layers work. The Navigator palette gives you easy access to alternate ways to zoom and scroll within an image. Neither of these functions is limited by which tool is currently active. You can open unseen palettes by selecting them on the Window menu. The Palette Bin provides handy access to your most frequently used palettes.
4You can hide a layer by clicking the eye icon () next to that layer on the Layers palette. To make the layer visible again, click the empty box where the eye icon should be to restore it.
5Lock icons prevent changes to a layer. You can click Lock All () to lock all the pixels on the selected layer, or you can click Lock Transparent Pixels () to protect only those areas. To remove a lock, select the locked layer and click the active lock icon to toggle it off. (This does not work for the Background layer, which can be unlocked only by renaming it to convert it into an ordinary layer.)
