27. Accessible by pressing Ctrl - this tool permits you to move selected pixels - even between images.

28. An image that is made up of composite pieces that can be manipulated independently.

29. A setting in the options bar that determines how many colors the magic wand selects at a time - as measured in luminosity values.

30. The most popular method for transferring dark pixels from the Cyan - Magenta - and Yellow channels to the Black channel - thus producing rich - volumetric shadows.
