When I've added words to an image using "decorate" and saved it, I can't seem to make changes to those words if I want to edit again -- what am I missing?

Are you using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements? Sounds like the file was 'flattened' either by choosing Layer>Flatten Image... or saving to a file type that doesn't preserve layers like JPEG. My guess is it's the latter, and would recommend saving in the tiff or psd format to preserved edit-ability - and saving a copy as a JPEG for sharing the final image.

Thank you -- I was actually usualy photoshop.com editing tools which I guess are Elements....hadn't thought about the layering and flattening function - I'm such a novice and there's so much to learn! One step at a time.... Elizabeth

Ahh, you're using the Photoshop Express Editor on Photoshop.com. The Photoshop.com guys would have to pipe in on what the best workflow there is.

Hi Elizabeth,

Are you using Photoshop Express Editor for long time or it is recent use?

Also, the Express Editor doesn't maintain layers across sessions for edited image. It is possible to change the text in same session of editing. Once you save and re-open the image in editor the text editing or reverting any edits will not be possible.
