26. Digital photographs and scanned artwork composed exclusively of colored pixels.

27. A tool that lets you adjust one region of an image independently of another inside Camera Raw.

28. The one command that lets you pinpoint a specific color in an image and make it lighter or darker; best suited to reducing contrast.

29. A means for cropping the contents of a group of layers to the boundaries of a layer beneath them.

44. The number of pixels that will print in a linear inch or millimeter of page space.

45. Any information above and beyond the core image data - including the date the image was last saved - the copyright holder - and how the image was captured.

46. The appearance of luminance aberrations - caused in HDR photos by an element moving or changing apperance between individual frames.

47. The output that occurs before a document is loaded onto a professional printing press for mass reproduction.

48. The spot from which the healing brush samples information when repairing a dlaw in an image.

49. The arrangement of layers in a composition - from front to back - which you can adjust by pressing Ctrl with the bracket keys [ ].
