Hi, I am using photoshop 7.0 on this computer for the first time, its the same version that i use at work all the time but some things are not acting right here and i can't figure it out!
Well what i am doing is pasting a copied image from a .tif into an empty document that i created and it pastes it into the BACKGROUND which is LOCKED. And it won't let me create a new layer, infact all of my layer menu options are turned off and i can't seem to get them to work. I can't unlock the backgound layer either amd every time i paste a new copied image from the .tif it will paste it into the background layer instead of creating a new one.
Why is it doing this and what setting do i have to change to turn it off?
If anybody knows how to fix this issue please help!
Sae as before.. you are working in 16 bit... change image mode to 8 bit
