1 Select a layer.
2 Click one or more lock options in the Layers palette. In ImageReady, you can also choose Layer Options from the Layers palette menu, and select one or more lock options:
• Lock Transparency □ to confine editing to the opaque portions of the layer. This option is equivalent to the Preserve Transparency option in earlier versions of Photoshop.
• Lock Image .■' to prevent modification of the layer's pixels using the painting tools.
• Lock Position c to prevent the layer's pixels from being moved.
Note: For type layers, Lock Transparency and Lock Image are selected by default and cannot be deselected.
