When I open Photoshop Elements 10 Editor to edit a text layer on a 511KB 412x292 psd photo the text layer is not shown. How do I open the text layer? How do I edit the text layer? How do I save the finished work product? The background layer is locked. I can't unlock it. Do I have to unlock first or do what? I have tried any number of approaches none of which open the text layer for editing. I would greatly appreciate help in resolving this issue.
How do you know there is a text layer? All the layers should be shown in the layers panel.
The background layer is always partially locked and that has no effect on editing. You can ignore that.
Would this be a comp layer or part of a layer group created in full Photoshop, by any chance?
Oh, I see it's a psd. Can you post a screenshot of the layers panel? Press command+shift+4, drag over the layers panel and a png file will appear on the desktop. To post it here, come to the forum web page and use the camera icon above the message composition area.
Barbara, Thank you for the quick reply. I needed to send this picture, including text, so I have redone and scrapped the original. The new picture, with text, shows the text layer as you indicated it should. Thanks much for your help!
