I'm a complete newbie to Photoshop. I have a theatre poster that I had designed and I now want to use it again but I need to update the performance dates and text. How do I do this? Do I need to change the format of the poster to edit it eg JPEG, PDF...? All help and advise greatly appreciated!! Thanks. Matt

No, the format you save it in doesn't matter.
But if you no longer have layers in the document, then you will have to paint out the existing text and put in new text.

If the current incarnation is a pdf with vector data it may be better to edit that in Acrobat or Illustrator than to rasterize it in Photoshop.
