Unlocking Layers

Beitragvon k8ufox2 » So Nov 21, 2010 12:48 pm

I'm trying to work with some jpg images pulled from the web. Specifically, trying to pull the image from it's background and place it as a layer onto another image/background. Every jpg I try to work with is LOCKED (will not even let me move the entire image to another) and I cannot seem to unlock it with anything. When right clicking on the image in the layer palette, all the options are greyed out with the exception of "Duplicate Layer". I've even tried to work with a duplicate layer but the original still comes back to halt the process with "Cannot complete your request because the layer is locked". Thanks in advance for any assistance!

By default the background layer is always locked. A background layer is created in Artweaver when opening a document which does not have/support transparency. To unlock the background layer, just duplicate it and remove all checks from the locking options in the layer palette. Afterwards the newly created layer should be free movable.
