Adobe Photoshop CS6: Where did 'preserve transparency' go?


Question

I haven't been heavily using PhotoShop for a few years and now need to get some work done in CS6 and for the life of me, I can't find the setting for paintbrushes to 'preserve transparency' when painting on a layer.

Is this feature still there somewhere? Perhaps hidden or renamed?

Accepted Answer

Preserve transparency is a layer setting. It appears at the top of the Layer Panel in the "Lock" icon list.

Highlight the layer you wish to preserve and click the small checkerboard icon next to the word "Lock"
