How to unlock layers in Adobe Photoshop

Layers are an essential feature in Photoshop. They allow users to separate work into smaller pieces and the effects that can be applied in separate sequences allow users to create more complex work.

Unlock lines in Adobe Photoshop

Layers can be locked and some images, when opened in Photoshop, can be opened as a locked layer. A locking lid prevents changes from doing anything on it. This is great if you are finding or coloring line art or if you don’t want to change a particular cover but still need to be visible. It can block edits unintentionally. A locked cover is a cover that lasts after you close and open a file.

It’s easy to lock and unlock cover in Photoshop. Here’s how it works.

1. Cover solution in Photoshop

Rows can be locked individually, or you can lock an entire group of layers (rows gathered in a folder). To unlock Photoshop cover;

  1. Open the Photoshop file.
  2. Look for the Layers panel.
  3. Select the fold that’s locked (and you want to unlock).
  4. Click on the folded lock icon.
  5. The cover will be loosened.

2. Solve a group in Photoshop

You can solve a group in Photoshop by following these steps.

  1. Open the Photoshop file.
  2. Select the locked group.
  3. Click on the locking image on the group to release the group.

3. Solve background in Photoshop

We mentioned how some images open as locked folders in Photoshop. Unlike other user-created series, these types of series cannot be solved in the same way. To unlock this type of cover, follow these steps.

  1. Open the image in Photoshop.
  2. In the window of the lines, select the level at which that image is (usually this is the first ie, back cover).
  3. Right click on the fold and select Back row.
  4. A. a new cover will be created from the image.
  5. The new cover will be a copy of the image and will be opened.


Photoshop does not have a password protection feature for individual files and certainly not for individual rows in a file. In some cases, for example, if you open an SVG file, you will not be able to create new rows. This is not a locked cover. Instead, it is the nature of the image. You have to crawl the cover before you can edit it directly. Even when copying and pasting from a single file to anther, the SVG file will not be edited until it is destroyed. Photoshop is a complex app and it can take a while to figure out how it works. You should be aware that, in addition to PNGs and JPGs, other image formats can behave like layers in Photoshop.
