91. About Layers and the Layers Palette


All images in Photoshop Elements have at least one layer, the Background layer. You will see this layer with any new image that you open in Photoshop Elements, including photos that you import from a digital camera. The Background layer is always locked, which means that you cannot change the stacking order, blend mode, or opacity of the Background layer in an image. You also cannot delete pixels on the Background layer and make them transparent. If you try, those pixels are filled with the current background color. If you want to make any of these changes to that layer, you must first convert the Background layer to a regular image layer.
